You may use Internet Banking to (a) transfer funds between your accounts; (b) obtain account balances; (c) obtain history and transaction information on your accounts; and (d) obtain loan account balance information. These features are limited to the extent, and subject to the terms, noted below. i. Your ability to transfer funds between certain accounts is limited by federal law and the Deposit Agreement. You should refer to the Deposit Agreement for legal restrictions and service charges applicable for excessive withdrawals and transfers.
