When you use or access, or permit any other person(s) or entity to use or access the Online Service, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. We may amend or change this Agreement (including applicable fees and service charges) from time to time, at our sole discretion, by sending you written notice by electronic mail or by regular mail or by posting the updated terms on the sites within the Online Service (the "Site(s)"). Please access and review this Agreement regularly. If you find the Agreement unacceptable to you at any time, please discontinue your use of the Online Service.

The Online Service is an online financial services website offering a variety of content, products and services. We grant to you, for your personal purposes only, a nonexclusive, limited and revocable right to access and use the Online Service. You agree not to use the Online Service for any other purpose, including commercial purposes, such as co-branding, framing, linking, or reselling any portion of the Online Service without our prior written consent.
You are responsible for obtaining, installing, maintaining and operating all equipment necessary for you to access the Online Service, in accordance with such requirements as may be (i) provided by the equipment manufacturers and (ii) any other documentation we provide to you in connection with your accounts and services.

Applied Bank transmits data using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology that supports 128-bit key encryption. It is important to verify that a secure connection between your browser and the Internet Banking server has been established before transmitting any confidential account information over the Internet. This can be verified by an indicator on your web browser. Netscape Navigator has a key symbol that appears in the lower left corner of the screen. When the symbol appears "solid" transmitted data is being encrypted. When this symbol appears "broken", a secure session has not been established. Similarly, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Based browsers have a lock symbol that appears when data is being encrypted. When this symbol does not appear, a session is not secure.
You may only access the Online Service by utilizing an encrypted browser. You are responsible for obtaining a browser capable of a sufficiently high level of encryption to meet the systems requirements we establish from time to time. You may use any standard 128-bit encrypted browser to access our website. You acknowledge that we are not responsible for notifying you of any upgrades, fixes, or enhancements to, or for providing technical or other support for, any browser or for any compromise of data transmitted across computer networks or telecommunications facilities, including, but not limited to, the Internet. Although we may make browser software available to you by facilitating a link to a third party site where you may download such browser software, we make no endorsement of any specific browser software. Your use of any browser may also be subject to the license agreements of the browser manufacturer, in addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You are additionally responsible for obtaining Internet services via the Internet service provider of your choice, for any and all fees imposed by such Internet service provider and any associated communications service provider charges. You acknowledge that there are certain security, corruption, transmission error, and access availability risks associated with using open networks such as the Internet and you hereby expressly assume such risks (to the extent the law allows you to do so). You acknowledge that you have requested the service for your convenience, have made your own independent assessment of the adequacy of the Internet as a delivery mechanism for accessing information and initiating instructions and that you are satisfied with that assessment. We are not responsible for any Internet access services.
We may at our option change the parameters for the password used to access the Online Service (“Password”) without prior notice to you, and if we do so, you will be required to change your Password the next time you access the Online Service. To prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and to prevent unauthorized use of the Online Service, you agree to protect and keep confidential your card number, account number, PIN, User ID, Password, or other means of accessing your accounts via the Online Service.
