A Password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identifier, such as a date of birth, CPF or social security number, etc. The Access Id, Password, and MLAP must be kept confidential and secure. By using the Service, you are authorizing the Bank to rely on the Access Ids, Passwords and MLAP to identify you or your Users when providing the Services.

The Access Id, Password, and MLAP should never be disclosed to unauthorized persons and should not be written down.
Each User will be required to enter an Access Id, click on an icon to proceed and complete a Multi-Layered Authentication Process (MLAP). To the extent the System does not recognize the User’s computer, the User will be required to answer certain security questions previously chosen by the User during the registration process.
Upon gaining access to the System, your account will be subject to certain conditions, restrictions and limitations relating to funds transfers (including Bank-to-Bank Transfers) set forth in paragraphs 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 of this agreement, as applicable.
When you give or disclose to someone Access Ids and Passwords and the MLAP you are authorizing that person to use the Services, and you are responsible for all transactions that such person performs while using the Services. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want to be performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that a person is no longer authorized, then only transactions that person performs after the time you notify us are considered unauthorized. Transactions that you or someone acting with you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.
You should never leave your account information displayed in an area accessible by others and should never leave a logged on terminal unattended while using the Services. To prevent unauthorized access, Users must sign-off the system as soon as their task is finished and close their browser to ensure confidentiality.
The Services has a feature that automatically disables the Access Ids after three (3) consecutive unsuccessful log-on attempts have been made by failing to successfully complete the MLAP or using an incorrect Password. You must contact the Bank to be restored access. You will be solely responsible for actions resulting from the use or misuse of the Access Id, Password and/or MLAP.
We reserve the right to block access to the Services to maintain or restore security to our site and systems, if we reasonably believe the Access Id, Password and/or MLAP have been or may be obtained or are being used or may be used by unauthorized person(s). Furthermore, if there is no log-in on to the Services or there has not been any transactions processed through such system over a period of ninety (90) days, access to the Services may be suspended or canceled by the Bank at its sole discretion, but Bank shall not be liable to you for its failure to do so.

You agree to: (1) keep your Password and the MLAP secure and strictly confidential, providing it only to authorized signers on your account(s); (2) instruct each person to whom you give your Password and the MLAP that he or she is not to disclose it to any unauthorized person; and (3) immediately notify us and select a new Password and/or the MLAP if you believe your Password and/or the MLAP may have become known to an unauthorized person.
