WHAT DOES PIONEER COMMUNITY BANK DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

What we do
|How does Pioneer Community Bank protect my personal information?||
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
We also maintain other physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to rptect this information and we limit access to information to those emloyees for whom access is appropriate.

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.
|Why can’t I limit all sharing?||
Federal law gives you the right to limit only
State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and non-financial companies.
Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies.
A formal agreement between nonaffiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.
Your transactions are absolutely safe. Pioneer Community Bank works with cutting-edge technology partners to ensure that the most secure environment is made possible for our valued customers. We offer you worry-free Internet banking. You can be completely confident of the following security measures:
Our system ensures that data-exchanged between your PC and our computer networks are encrypted with 128-bit encryption – the strongest encryption available. Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL), which utilizes mathematical formulas to ‘encrypt’ or hide information from prying eyes on the Internet. Additionally, if SSL detects that data was added or deleted after you sent it to the bank, the connection will be severed in order to guard against any tampering. The most popular browsers have the SSL security feature included.
Our computer system does not connect directly to the Internet. It is isolated from the network via a ‘firewall.’ A firewall is a combination of software and hardware products that designate parameters, and control and limit the access that outside computers have to the banks’ internal networks and databases. You can feel secure knowing that our firewall protects your personal information from unauthorized access.
User IDs and passwords are isolated from the Internet by being stored on Pioneer Community Bank’s Data Service Bureau’s computers. This way, the passwords and IDs can never be accessed or downloaded by anyone on the Internet. Additionally, user passwords can vary from six to twelve characters, which means the chance of randomly guessing a password is less than one in several hundred million! The system also checks for invalid logins and automatically disallows a user after three invalid attempts. This prohibits the ‘hacker’ from gaining access to our system, thus protecting your accounts.
You will be responsible for maintaining one of the most important security measures: your password. When you receive your Pioneer Community Bank online banking password, be sure to keep it a secret. Memorize it, or write it down and keep it in a safe place. It is not recommended you carry your password in your purse or wallet. Make sure no one watches you enter your password and always close your browser when leaving the computer. Make sure you regularly scan your computer for viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes. You ultimately hold the key to your password security.”
Recently an additional layer of security and fraud protection has been added to help prevent identity theft. Now when you signup for Internet banking you will be required to establish a security image and three security questions. Your security image will help to confirm that the website you are visiting is authentic and your passcodes will serve as a second layer of security to verify your identity on non-registered computers.
Terms & Conditions
ABILTIY TO WITHDRAW FUNDS — This policy statement applies to “transaction” accounts. Transaction accounts, in general, are accounts which permit an unlimited number of payments to third persons and an unlimited number of telephone and preauthorized transfers to accounts of yours with us. Checking accounts are the most common transaction accounts. Fell free to ask us whether any of your other accounts might also be under this policy.
Our policy is to make funds from your cash and check deposits available to you on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. Electronic direct deposits will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written. Please remember that even after we have made funds available to you and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for checks you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day, except Saturday, Sundays, and federal holidays. If you make a deposit before 4:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday on business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. If you make a deposit before 6:00 p.m. on a Friday on a business day we are open, we will consider that to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit after 6:00 p.m. on a Friday or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. If you make a deposit at an ATM before 3:00 p.m. on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your deposit. However, if you make a deposit at an ATM after 3:00 p.m. or on a day we are not open, we will consider that deposit was made on the next business day we are open.
If we cash a check for you that is drawn on another bank, we may withhold the availability of a corresponding amount of funds that are already in your accounts. Those funds will be available at the time funds from the check we cashed would have been available if you had deposited it.
If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another bank, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you deposited.
LONGER DELAYS MAY APPLY
Case-By-Case Delays — In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. Depending on the type of check that you deposit, funds may not be available until the second business day after the day of your deposit. The first $200.00 of your deposits, however, will be available on the first business day.
If we are not going to make all of the funds from your deposit available on the first business day after we receive your deposit, we will notify you at the time you make your deposit. We will also tell you when the funds will be available. If your deposit is not made directly to one of our employees, or if we decide to take this action after you have left the premises, we will mail you the notice by the day after we receive your deposit.
If you will need the funds from the deposit right away, you should ask us when the funds will be available.
Safeguard Exceptions — Funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
- We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
- You deposit checks totaling more that $5,000.00 on any one day.
- You re-deposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
- You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
- This is an emergency, such as failure of computer or communications equipment.
We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available.
They will generally be available no later than the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.
Special Rules for New Accounts
If you are a new customer, the following special rules will apply during the first 30 days your account is open.
Funds from electronic direct deposits to your account will be available on the day we receive the deposit. Funds from deposits of cash, wire transfers, and the first $5,000.00 of a day’s total deposits of cashier’s, certified, teller’s, traveler’s, and federal, state, and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit, if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the checks must be payable to you (and you may have to use a special deposit slip). The excess over $5,000.00 will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit. If your deposit of these checks (other that a U.S. Treasury check) is not made in person to one of our employees, the first $5,000.00 will not be available until the second business day of your deposit.
Funds from all other check deposits will be available on the ninth business day after the day of your deposit.

Online Banking services and each of your accounts are governed by the applicable Disclosures, Rates and Fee Schedules provided by the Bank in your new account packet, as each may be modified from time to time. Your initial use of Online Banking services indicates your agreement to be bound by this agreement and acknowledges your receipt and understanding of this document.
To subscribe to Online Banking, you must maintain at least one deposit Account with the Bank. Online Banking will allow you to access more than one Account, to view Account balance(s) and transaction information, transfer funds among designated Account. The Bank reserves the right to deny the Customer the ability to access Online Banking, to limit access or transactions or to revoke a Customer's access to Online Banking without advance notice to the Customer.
You are responsible for paying any fees associated with Online Banking as outlined within this agreement as well as any fees that may be accessed by your Internet Service Provider and for any telephone charges or fees incurred by accessing Online Banking.
The Bank is entitled to act on instructions received through Online Banking under your password and without inquiring into the identity of the person using that password. You should not under any circumstances disclose your password by telephone or to anyone claiming to represent the Bank; Pioneer Community Bank employees do not need and should not ask for your password. You are liable for all transactions made or authorized using your password. The Bank has no responsibility in establishing the identity of any person using your password. If, despite the Bank's advice, you give your password to anyone, you do so at your own risk since anyone to whom you give your password or other means of access will have full access to your account(s) even if you attempt to limit that person's authority. You must contact the Bank immediately in the event that your password has been lost, stolen or otherwise compromised so that it will not be honored and can be disabled. You hereby release the Bank from any liability and agree not to make any claim or bring any action against the Bank for honoring or allowing any actions or transactions where you have authorized the person performing the actions or transactions to use your account(s) and/or you have given your password to such person, or, in the case of a jointly held account, such person is one of the Account owners. You agree to indemnify the Bank and hold it harmless from and against any and all liability (including but not limited to reasonable attorney fees) arising from such claims or actions.
Account information displayed through Online Banking is current information. Funds transfers between Account(s) initiated on your computer using Online Banking and received by the Bank by 5:45P.M. EST Monday through Friday will be effective on the current business day. Funds transfers processed on your computer using Online Banking and received after 5:45P.M. EST Monday through Friday or all day Saturday, Sunday and banking holidays will be effective the following business day.
Electronic mail to the Bank may be delayed; therefore, if you need the Bank to receive information concerning your Account immediately, you must contact the Bank in person or by telephone (i.e. stop payments, to report a lost or stolen ATM card or to report unauthorized use of your Account). The Bank shall have a reasonable period of time after receipt to act on requests or information you send by electronic mail.
The Bank will mail or deliver to you periodic statements for your Bank Accounts as disclosed in your deposit agreements. The Bank will include any transfers you authorize through Online Banking on your statements. You agree to review your periodic statements in accordance with this Agreement and any other deposit Agreements governing your Account, for accuracy of all data transmitted through Online Banking. You should promptly notify the Bank of any discrepancies, including but not limited to, any errors or inaccuracies related to data transmitted by Online Banking.
Some of the terms set forth below are governed by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act ("EFT Act"), which is only applicable to consumers. Commercial Account holders are not entitled to the rights provided under the EFT Act.
If you believe unauthorized transactions are being made from your Account, please notify the Bank immediately. Contact Pioneer Community Bank at 304-938-5322 or write the Bank at: P.O. Box 368, Iaeger, West Virginia 24844.
If you feel that any statement is wrong, or you wish to have more information about a transfer listed on a statement, contact us in writing or by telephone. We must hear from you within sixty (60) days after we send you the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared. When you contact us,
1) Tell us your name and Account number
2) Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as possible why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
3) Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.
If you notify us by telephone, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within ten (10) business days. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within ten (10) business days, we may not provisionally credit your Account.
We will tell you the results of our investigation within ten (10) business days after notice of the problem and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to ninety (90) days to investigate complaints or questions concerning foreign-initiated transfers, or up to forty-five (45) days to investigate all other electronic transfers. If we need this extended time to investigate, we will provisionally credit your Account within ten (10) business days for the amount you think is in error. You will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete the investigation. If we decide no error occurred, we will send you a written explanation within three business days after our investigation is completed. You may ask for copies of the documents we used in our investigation.
You shall be responsible for all transfers you authorize through Online Banking. You shall also be responsible for all transactions initiated by persons to whom you have given your password. You must report to the Bank AT ONCE if the password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of minimizing possible losses. Failure to notify the Bank could result in the loss of all money in your Account plus your maximum line of credit, if you have one. If you report to the Bank within two (2) business days, the loss sustained by you will be no more than $50 if your password is used without your permission. If you do not report to the Bank within two (2) business days after learning of the loss or theft of the password, and the Bank can prove that it could have prevented someone from using the password without your permission had it been notified, you could lose as much as $500. Also, if the statement shows electronic transfers you did not make, report them to the Bank at once. If you do not tell the Bank within 60 days after the statement was mailed, you may lose all of the money transferred after the 60 days if the Bank can prove that it could have prevented the loss had you reported it promptly. The Bank may extend the time periods for a good reason, such as a long trip or hospital stay, which might keep you from notifying the Bank.
The Bank shall be responsible for performing services expressly provided for in this Agreement, and shall not be liable for any error or delay, so long as the Bank acted in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. The Bank shall not be liable if you do not have sufficient funds in a designated Account to complete the transaction you initiate or if the Account is closed. The Bank shall not be liable if you have not given the Bank complete, correct or current transfer or payment instructions or if you have not followed proper instructions given through Online Banking. The Bank shall not be responsible for any loss, damage, liability, or claim arising, directly or indirectly from any error, delay or failure in performance of any of its obligations hereunder which is caused by fire or other natural disaster, strike, civil unrest, any inoperability of communications facilities or any other circumstances beyond the control of the Bank.
I certify that I am at least 18 years of age, and that I have read, understand and agree to all terms, conditions and disclosures indicated on the previous screens and that I have truthfully and fully completed all items on this application.
My initial use of Pioneer Community Bank’s Online Banking product constitutes my acceptance and agreement to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this agreement and acknowledges my receipt and understanding of this agreement.
The Bank has the right to modify or terminate this Agreement at any time. We will comply with any notice requirements under applicable law for such changes or termination. If we terminate this Agreement, no further Online Banking transfers will be made, including but not limited to any payments or transfers scheduled in advance or any preauthorized recurring payments or transfers. If we modify this Agreement, your continued use of Online Banking services will constitute your acceptance of such changes in each instance.
Federal financial regulators are reporting that Internet threats have changed significantly over the past several years. Sophisticated hacking techniques and growing organized cyber-criminal groups are increasingly targeting financial institutions, compromising security controls, and engaging in online account takeovers and fraudulent electronic funds transfers.
In order to help ensure the security of your online transactions, we want you to know that:
In addition, we may require owners of commercial accounts to perform their own risk assessments and controls evaluations. For example:
Federal regulations provide consumers with some protections for electronic fund transfers. These regulations generally apply to accounts with Internet access.
For example, these federal laws establish limits on a consumer's liability for unauthorized electronic fund transfers. They also provide specific steps you need to take to help resolve an error with your account. Note, however, that in order to take advantage of these protections, you must act in a timely manner. Make sure you notify us immediately if you believe your access information has been stolen or compromised. Also, review your account activity and periodic statement and promptly report any errors or unauthorized transactions. See the Electronic Fund Transfer disclosures that were provided at account opening for more information on these types of protections. These disclosures are also available online (or ask us and we will gladly provide you with a copy).
If you become aware of suspicious account activity, you should immediately contact the authorities and contact us at the number listed below.
