Q: What is Customer Liability?

Generally, the business is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the passwords and all transactions incurred using those user codes and passwords.  It should disclose passwords only to those individuals authorized to use online banking or a particular function level in online banking.  Anyone to whom the business discloses its passwords and anyone who has access to those passwords will have full access to the services that can be performed on online banking, including full access to the business accounts.  The person’s authority will be limited only to the extent that the password was established with limitations on the functions that could be performed using that password.  All communications containing proper user codes and passwords are authorized by the business and the bank will act upon those communications.  The business will be bound by any transaction performed by any person using that user code and password, and assumes full responsibility and liability for the consequences of any misuse or unauthorized use of or access to online banking services or disclosure of any confidential information or instructions of the business by its employees, agents or other third parties that gain access to those passwords – even if they were generated by a cyber-criminal.
