You agree that the Bank may act on the verbal, written, or electronic instructions of any authorized signer. You agree that the Bank may act on the electronic instructions of your Username (referred to User ID within mobile banking) and Password which will be deemed an authorized use, and you agree that the use of same will have the same effect as your signature authorizing the transaction until such time that you have notified us in writing of the unauthorized use or theft of your Username and/or Password.

Other Bank Agreements

You should review those documents for any fees or other restrictions that may affect your use of internet banking.
Website Content and Links to Other Websites
Internet banking is provided through our website www.theguarantybank.com, which may include news, information, stock quotes, links to other merchants, and links to other websites that are provided as a convenience to you. By clicking on one of these links, you are leaving the website of Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank and entering a separate and unaffiliated website. Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank does not necessarily agree with the views expressed on separate websites, nor does the Bank attest to the accuracy of the information on separate websites. The Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank’s Privacy and Security Policies do not apply to any separate websites.
You agree to receive this Agreement electronically. You also agree that we may respond to you with an electronic communication to any electronic communication you send to us.
Electronic Mail (email)
You may contact us via email. However, mail is an inherently unsecure method of communication. Sending a message via the ‘Secure Form’ link under the Contact Us button at www.theguarantybank.com provides a greater level of security. You are not allowed to use this form to initiate transactions on your account(s). For banking transactions, please use the appropriate functions within internet banking.
Electronic Alerts (eAlerts)
You may setup various eAlerts on your account(s), such as a low balance in your account or an upcoming payment reminder, and receive notification via email, mobile text message or within GOLD. Account numbers within eAlert notifications are masked. Message and data rates may apply.
We rely on the contact information you provide when you set up an eAlert and we are not responsible for misdirected messages. In the event an eAlert is not received by you, we are not liable. You are still responsible for taking appropriate action on your account(s) - such as when a loan payment is due or a deficit account balance.
Account balances are available through internet banking for your linked deposit accounts. Internet banking lists your account balance as of the date indicated. Your account balance may include uncollected funds. The balance consists of funds that are readily available for withdrawal. Information about your loans is also available
You can make transfers from any linked accounts and you must be an authorized signer on each account. We reserve the right to limit the frequency and dollar amount of transactions on your accounts for security or administrative reasons. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for all transfers.
Liability for Failure to Stop Payment of Preauthorized Transfer
If you order us to stop payment of a preauthorized transfer three business days or more orally or through internet banking before the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for the amount of the payment that you ordered stopped, except in those instances set forth in the “Our Responsibility” section of the Agreement. Preauthorized transfers cannot be stopped or cancelled through mobile banking.
For information about external transfers, please refer to the “External Transfers Terms and Conditions” section at the end of this Agreement.
Your ability to transfer funds to another account or to third parties from savings and money market accounts is limited by federal regulations. You are limited to six preauthorized, automatic, telephone, or computer transfers or by check/draft (money market accounts only), debit card or similar order to third parties per calendar month or statement cycle. Each transfer through internet banking from your money market or savings account is counted as one of the six transfers permitted each month/cycle. Should excessive transfers occur on your money market or savings account, we may convert your account to a different product type, close your account or stop electronic access to the account.
Internet Banking Password
One of your WGSB account numbers must be used as part of the initial enrollment process. You will then be asked to select a Username during the process. Your Username should contain only letters and numbers and it is case sensitive. You will also be asked to select a new Password, which should be unique from all other passwords used. Your Password must be between 10 and 17 characters in length and contain at least 1 uppercase alphabetic character, 1 lowercase alphabetic character, 1 numeric character and 1 special character (for example !,@,#,$,%,^,&,*,(),_,+, or ?). All characters are case sensitive. For example, if your Password is "4Banking@" and you type "4banking@", it will not work. You must type a capital "B." It is important to keep your Username and Password confidential in order to prevent unauthorized transactions on your bank accounts. You are responsible for keeping your Username and Password confidential at all times. The Online Banking system will automatically prompt you to change your Password at least once every 12 months. It is strongly recommended that you change your password regularly.
Your Username and Password are exclusively for your use. You agree to take reasonable precautions to safeguard your Username and Password. You acknowledge and agree that we have employed commercially reasonable security measures to protect the integrity of the data you transmit to us via internet banking and to protect against unauthorized access to your accounts. You agree that any interception of data that occurs, notwithstanding these security measures, is beyond our control and we are not responsible for such interception. You also agree that if we abide by the security procedures applicable to your accounts, you are liable for any losses that occur. Your Username and Password are your signature authorization for the initial and any ongoing transactions. Each time you enter your Username and Password, you are authorizing us to process your requested transaction.
If you forget your Password, you may use the “Forgot Password” link on our GOLD or mobile banking login page or you may call us at (603) 747-2735 or 1-800-564-2735 in order to have your password reset. Generally, you should change your password frequently to help safeguard the security of access to your accounts. You may change your password in the Profile section of the internet banking service. Once you have changed your password, you will get a confirming email notifying you that it has been changed. If you receive an email and you did not change your password, please contact the Bank immediately. Our employees will never contact you via e-mail or by telephone requesting your internet banking password. If you are contacted by anyone requesting this information, do not provide it and contact us immediately at (603) 747-2735 or 1-800-564-2735.
For your security, the locked padlock image in the website address bar indicates that you are on a secure page. If the padlock appears unlocked, or does not appear, DO NOT ENTER YOUR PASSWORD and contact customer support for assistance during regular business hours (Monday-Friday 8am-5pm) at 800-564-2735.
A session is completed when you click on the “Log Off” button, close your browser, or move to a web site outside the secure socket layer established by the Bank. The session may also be terminated if there is no activity within a set amount of time. In the event of a communications error, the session is terminated automatically. If you have not completed your transaction before the session is terminated, you must begin the transaction again.
GOLD internet banking is generally available twenty four (24) hours a day and seven (7) days a week. There are certain times when the system becomes unavailable due to emergency or scheduled system maintenance.

Regulation E and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Disclosures
For consumer accounts only, the EFT information contained within this Agreement is intended to supplement our Electronic Fund Transfers disclosure as previously provided to you in printed form. If EFT information in this Agreement and the EFT disclosure conflict then the EFT disclosure shall prevail.
Errors or Questions: Consumer Responsibility
You are responsible for all transfers that you authorize using internet banking. If you permit other persons to use internet banking with your password, you are responsible for any transactions they authorize from your accounts whether or not you intended that they perform these transactions. Transactions that you initiate with fraudulent intent, or someone acting with you initiates, will also be authorized transactions.
Safeguard your account by:
- not sharing your Username and Password, and immediately reporting any known theft of your Username and/or Password, leading to unauthorized access to accounts,
- signing out of your banking session and not leaving your computer unattended in the middle of a banking session,
- logging off after completing your banking session and before visiting other internet sites, and
- not allowing someone to have remote access to your computer and internet banking session.
Notify us AT ONCE if you believe:
- there is an error on your statement, or
- your internet banking password has been lost or stolen, or
- someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, or
- if you have a question about an internet banking transaction or
- your mobile device has been stolen, lost or used without your permission.
Failure to notify the Bank could cause you to lose all the money in your account.
If you notify us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50 if your internet banking password is used without your permission. If you notify us more than two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your GOLD internet banking Password, and the Bank can prove it could have stopped someone from using your internet banking password without your permission if you had told the Bank, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, notify the Bank at once. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after the sixty (60) days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time.
If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from notifying us, the Bank will extend the time periods.
We are responsible for completing transfers on time according to your properly entered and transmitted instructions. However, we will not be responsible:
- if you have not properly followed the on-screen instructions for the transaction,
- if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money in your account to make a transfer,
- if you have an overdraft line and a transfer would cause the balance to go over the credit limit,
- if any electronic terminal or system was not working properly and you knew about the problem when you started the transfer,
- if withdrawals from any of your internet banking linked accounts have been prohibited by a court order such as a garnishment or other legal process, or
- if circumstances beyond our control (such as strikes, fire, or flood) prevent the transaction or transfer despite reasonable precautions we have taken.
Error Resolution - For Consumer Accounts Only:
In case of errors or questions about your electronic transfers, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed below as soon as you can, if you think your statement is incorrect or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement. We must hear from you no later than sixty (60) days after we sent you the first statement on which the problem or error appeared. When you report the error:
- Tell us your name and account number,
- 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,
- 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 10 business days.
We will determine whether an error occurred within 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 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 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 we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account.
We will tell you the results within three 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.
If we credit your account with funds while investigating an error, you must repay those funds to us if we conclude no error has occurred.

Authorization and Processing
- You represent and warrant that you are either the sole owner or a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account and that you have all necessary legal right, power and authority to transfer funds between the Eligible Transaction Account and the External Account. If you are a joint owner of the Eligible Transaction Account, External Account, or both, then you represent and warrant that (i) you have been authorized by all of the other joint owners to operate such Accounts without their consent (including without limitation to withdraw or deposit any amount of funds to such Accounts or to even withdraw all funds from such Accounts); and (ii) we may act on your instructions regarding such Accounts without liability to such other joint owners. Further, you represent and warrant that the External Account is located in the United States.

- It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of any information that you enter into the Account to Account Transfer Service, and for informing us as soon as possible if you become aware that this information is inaccurate.

Transfer Methods and Amounts
There are limits on the amount of money you can send or receive through our Account to Account Transfer Service. Your limits may be adjusted from time-to-time in our sole discretion. You may have the ability to log in to the Site to view your individual transaction limits. We or our Service Provider also reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf though the Account to Account Transfer Service, and in the event that your Eligible Transaction Account is closed or otherwise unavailable to us the method to return funds to you.
Transfer Cancellation Requests
You may cancel a transfer at any time until it begins processing (as shown in the Account to Account Transfer Service). We will, to the extent permitted by law, make reasonable attempts to return any unclaimed, refused, refunded, prohibited, or denied transfer to your Account that we debited for the funds transfer. If this is unsuccessful (for example, the Eligible Transaction Account has been closed) we will make reasonable attempts to otherwise return the funds to you.
Stop Transfer Requests
If you desire to stop any transfer that has already been processed, you must contact customer care for the Account to Account Transfer Service pursuant to Section 26 (Errors, Questions, and Complaints). Although we will make a reasonable effort to accommodate your request, we will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each request will be the current charge for such service as set out in the applicable fee schedule.
Account to Account Transfer Service Fees and Additional Charges
You are responsible for paying all fees associated with your use of the Account to Account Transfer Service. Applicable fees will be disclosed in the user interface for, or elsewhere within, the Account to Account Transfer Service or Site.

There may also be charges for additional transactions and other optional services.

Any financial fees associated with your standard deposit accounts will continue to apply. You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and Internet service provider. Section 22 (Failed Or Returned Transfer Instructions) applies if you do not pay our fees and charges for the Account to Account Transfer Service, including without limitation if we debit the External Account for such fees, as described in this Section, and there are insufficient fees in the External Account; Section 22 (Failed Or Returned Transfer Instructions) should be interpreted as applying to the External Account, not just the Eligible Transaction Account, in such circumstances.
We reserve the right to refuse any transfer. As required by applicable law, we will notify you promptly if we decide to refuse to transfer funds.
In using the Account to Account Transfer Service, you understand transfers may be returned for various reasons such as, but not limited to, the External Account number is not valid.
