Online Banking Service Agreement

Welcome to Online Banking with the State Bank of Lakota! Protecting the privacy of your personal information is our highest priority. Our online banking system utilizes the most up to date technology to guard against the unauthorized access of your information. This technology includes Multi Factor Authentication for your log-in to our system, and Secure Socket Layer encryption of your data. Explanations of this technology are included in the "Security Information" link on our online banking web site.

While we will take all necessary steps to guard against any theft of your personal information, you must remember that you are a very important part of the overall process to keep your information secure. In that regard we recommend the following:

In addition, it is your responsibility to insure that your computer, or any computer that you use to connect to our web site, is free from viruses, spyware, or any other malicious software; as the State Bank of Lakota assumes no responsibility or liability for problems with a computer you utilize to connect to our web site, for your internet connection, or for your internet service provider.

Also, it is your responsibility to notify us immediately if you have reason to believe that someone other than you has obtained your log-in information.

This User ID along with a password are necessary to get set up on our Online Banking System. We will provide you with an initial password along with instructions on how to log on to the system in a separate mailing.
