Beware of Pop-Up Messages asking for Account Information.  The FDIC has issued a warning about an Internet scam where a "pop-up" message appears on the screen asking for the user's bank account.  If the user enters his or her account information, it is sent to a hacker (Not The Bank), who will then use the information to withdraw money electronically from the account.

Lena State Bank emphasizes that WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR ACCOUNT INFORMATION EITHER ONLINE OR VIA E-MAIL.  If you experience such a request for account information, please do not answer, and call the bank immediately at 815-369-4901.

At Lena State Bank, the security and integrity of our customers' accounts and transactions are a top priority. To protect your personal information we require 128-bit encryption to use our Internet Banking Systems.  We also have enhanced security with multi-factor authentication.

Preauthorized Payment Right to stop payment and procedures for doing so. If you have told us in advance to make regular payments out of your account, you can stop any of these payments. Here is how: Call us at (815) 369-4901 or write to us at Lena State Bank,  P.O. Box 456, Lena, IL 61048-0456 in time for us to receive your request 3 business days or more before your payment is scheduled to be made. If you call, we will also require you to put your request in writing and get it to us within 14 days after you call. We will charge you a $30.00 stop payment fee.

Notice of varying amounts. If these regular payments may vary in amount, the person you are going to pay will tell you, 10 days before each payment, when it will be made and how much it will be. (You may choose instead to get this notice only when the payment would differ by more than a certain amount from the previous payment, or when the amount would fall outside certain limits that you set.)

Liability for failure to stop payment of preauthorized transfer. If you order us to stop one of these payments 3 business days or more the transfer is scheduled, and we do not do so, we will be liable for your losses or damages.

LIMITATIONS ON FREQUENCY AND AMOUNT: According to Federal Regulations, you may not make more than six (6) preauthorized or automatic transfers from your money market or savings account during a given monthly statement period. There are no limits on the number or dollar amount of transfer or payments you make from your checking account. Balances may include deposits subject to verification by us. The balance may also differ from your records due to deposits in process, outstanding checks or other withdrawals, payments or charges. We have the right to cancel transactions if sufficient funds are not available in your account.

USER ID AND PASSWORD: The User ID and password issued to you is for your security purposes. Your password is confidential and should not be disclosed to third parties. You are responsible for safekeeping your password. You may change your password at any time by requesting a password change on the login page. For security purposes, the system will automatically prompt you to change your password if you have not changed it in 180 days. You should carefully select a password that is hard to guess. (We suggest that you stay away from names, dates, and information that may be easily guessed.) You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your password available to anyone not authorized to sign on your accounts.

In order to ensure the security of your records, we will end your online session 10 minutes after your login to the system. This is to protect you in case you accidentally leave your computer unattended while you are logged on. When you return to your computer, simply reenter your user id and password and continue your session.

NO SIGNATURE REQUIREMENTS: When any payment or other online service generates items to be charged to your account, you agree that we may debit the designated account without requiring your signature on the item and without any notice to you.

NOTICE OF LIABILITY: (Consumer Only)

Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (Plus your maximum overdraft line of credit). If you tell us within two (2) business days, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your password without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00

If your statement shows transactions that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within sixty (60) days after the FIRST statement on which the error or problem appeared was mailed to you, you may not get back any money 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 telling us, we will extend the time period. When you give someone your Lena State Bank Online Banking Username and/or Password, you are authorizing that person to use your Online Banking Services, and you are responsible for all transactions the person performs using your Online Banking Services. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.

If you believe that your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission call (815) 369-4901, or write to us at Lena State Bank, P. O. Box 456, Lena, IL 61048-0456.

Box 456, Lena, IL 61048-0456 as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transaction listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than (60) days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  • 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

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days (90 days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction or a foreign initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have 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. An account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, if you are a new Customer.

We will tell you the results within 3 business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. If your account had been provisionally credited for the error, your account will be debited for the amount of the provisional credit.

You may request copies of the documentation that we used in our investigation.

SECURITY STATEMENT

Lena State Bank employs the latest in Internet Security and User Authentication to ensure that data being transmitted through the Internet Banking System (IBS) is secure from unauthorized access.  A brief overview of security controls are provided below.

Logical Security

Lena State Bank's IBS system utilizes a defense-in-depth security model.  This means that there are many layers of security controls in place to protect confidential information.  A multi-layered router and firewall architecture effectively isolates confidential information from internet access.  The IBS (Internet Banking System) network is properly segmented using VLAN's Sub-Net, and Network Address Translation, and it utilizes the latest industry standards and protocols for secure communication (i.e. VPN, SSL, IPSec, etc.) We proactively monitor and manage detection of vulnerabilities and security events, and immediately take the proper corrective actions. User ID's are unique to each user and strong password criterion is required.  Password changes are required every 180 days and are enforced via an automatic expiration response that prevents repeated or reuse of passwords.

Data Security

As a result of the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), financial institutions are required to ensure data privacy.  Lena State Bank's IBS has deployed a comprehensive Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) to meet these regulatory requirements for transmitting sensitive information.  The IBS's PKI is a cohesive system of effective policies, processes and encryption technologies (i.e. PGP, Entrust, VeriSign etc.) that all work together to confirm user authenticity and ensure data confidentiality and integrity. By combining the latest technology with authenticated access, Lena State Bank makes your Internet Banking transactions secure.

Secure Access and Verifying User Authenticity

To begin a session with the bank's server, the user must key in a Log-in ID and a password.  Our system, the Internet Banking System, uses a "3 strikes and you're out" lock-out mechanism to deter users from repeated login attempts.  After three unsuccessful login attempts, the system locks the user out requiring a phone call to the bank to verify the identity of the user and to unlock the user before re-entry into the system.

Secure Data Transfer, Router and Firewall

Once the server session is established, the user and the server are in a secured environment.  Requests must filter through a router and firewall before they are permitted to reach the server.  With the use of these technologies, your Internet banking transactions are secure.

COMPLETE AGREEMENT: This Agreement represents the sole and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding Online Banking services and merges and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous written or oral agreements and understandings regarding the subject matter hereof.
