ClientConnections Terms of Use

Introduction:

This page explains the terms and conditions for using our ClientConnections service and provides certain disclosures and information to you concerning the service. Each of your accounts at The Baptist Foundation of Oklahoma (the “Foundation”) is also governed by the applicable account disclosure/agreement, Ministry Funds Management Policy and Guidelines, and Ministry Funds Management Master Agreement.

How to Access Your Accounts:

To access your accounts through our ClientConnections service, you must have your username and a ClientConnections password. This information is requested when you enter our ClientConnections pages.

The password that is used to gain access to your information should be kept confidential, just as you would keep other PIN numbers and security codes confidential. For your protection we recommend that you change your ClientConnections access password regularly. It is recommended that you memorize this password and do not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your password, account numbers and other account data confidential. If you believe that your password may have been lost or stolen, or that someone has transferred or may transfer money between your accounts without your permission, notify the Foundation at once at 405-949-9500.

To get an initial password for the ClientConnections service, visit the Foundation office or call us at 405-949-9500.

Fees:

There is currently no fee for accessing your account(s) through our ClientConnections service. We reserve the right to impose/change the fee amount, if necessary, after providing thirty (30) days notice to all users at the ClientConnections login page and/or e-mail address.

Your Internet service provider (ISP) probably charges you a fee to access the Internet via its server. We have no control over ISP related fees.

Available Services and Limitations:

The following functions may be performed by members through the service:

  • Transfers: You may transfer funds between your Enhanced Cash Fund, Term Investment, or Loan Accounts as the account agreements may allow.
  • Check Withdrawals: You may request a check be mailed to you from your account.
  • Account Balances: You may view your Enhanced Cash Fund, Term Investment, and Loan Account balances. Because the main computer system is not connected to the Internet, it is possible that some transactions that affect these balances may have been processed and are not yet included in the balance at the time you view it. The information regarding your account balances on this website is provided to you as a courtesy pursuant to your request. For members that have filed a petition seeking bankruptcy protection under any chapter of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, no demand for payment is hereby made, and the information provided is not to be construed as an attempt to collect or recover any claim or debt in violation of the provisions of 11 U.S.C. Section 362.
  • Transaction History: You may view the transaction history for any Enhanced Cash Fund, Term Investment, or Loan Account. Because the main computer system is not connected to the Internet, it is possible that some transactions are not yet included in the history at the time you view it, even though they may have been processed. The main computer system is always the official record of account history.
  • Download Transactions: You may download transactions in various formats (as available on our site) for import into personal financial software programs such as Quicken® and CSV files.
  • ACH Origination Transfers: You may request an ACH transfer to or from an account through ClientConnections. Additional, terms and fees may apply.
  • Terminate a Term Investment: You may request the termination of a Term Investment through ClientConnections. The early termination of a Term Investment may be subject to penalties, see the current Ministry Funds Management Policy and Guidelines for details.
  • Reallocate: You may request the reallocation of investments between accounts through ClientConnections; penalties may apply, consult the current Ministry Funds Management Policy and Guidelines for Details.
  • Create a New Term Investment: You may request a new certificate be created through ClientConnections. Terms and conditions apply.
  • Password Changes: If you are a ClientConnections user, you may change your password at any time from within the ClientConnections section. For your protection we recommend that you change your ClientConnections password regularly.
  • Additional Services: From time to time, we will announce additional services which are available through ClientConnections. Your use of these services will constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions presented at the time they are announced.

We reserve the right to limit access or cancel on-line access at any time.

Business Day:

Our business days are Monday through Friday. Holidays are not included.

Transfers to or from MFM Investment Accounts:

Transfers submitted to or from an account before the cut-off time of 3:00 p.m. CT on a business day are posted on the same day. All transfers submitted after the cut-off time or on a non-business day are posted at the beginning of the next business day following the day the transfer was submitted.

Operating Systems and Security:

Our ClientConnections site is designed to operate using world wide web technologies and protocols which are adaptable to a wide range of systems. The ClientConnections section uses SSL encryption and requires a browser with a current (unexpired) Thawte Root CA Security Certificate. Some older browsers may not be able to connect to the site without first updating the browser security certificate. Our server uses 40 to 128 bit encryption, depending on the user's browser.

We use cookies to help us administer the ClientConnections section. Some browsers allow you to reject cookies from servers. If you don't allow us to set a cookie upon entering the site, you will not be able to log in. The cookie we set contains information we need for security, and allows us to 'time out' your authority to view information. We place the cookie with instructions that it can only be sent to a server in our ClientConnections domain (bfok.org). A cookie cannot be used to extract data from your PC. We do not store your Access Code, User Id or Password in your cookie.

The cookie we set will 'time out' your access authority to our ClientConnections section. Until it times out, you can come back to our ClientConnections without logging in. After the time out period, you will need to log in again. Remember, most browsers will let you use a BACK button to view previously visited documents, even if your viewing authority has expired. For this reason, the only way to keep others from viewing your account balance is to exit the browser when you are finished with your session. The best way is to completely close out of the Internet entirely, so the next person to get on will have to start with a new connection and a new browser. This is especially important if you are using a public or shared computer.

Privacy:

Our ClientConnections database is a private system operated for the exclusive use of our members. We use SSL encryption and digital server authentication to insure the privacy of your information when sending data between our ClientConnections server and your PC.

All ClientConnections logins are logged by the server. For authenticated members who use ClientConnections, we collect and store certain information such as how often you visit the ClientConnections section, dates and times of visits and which pages are being used. We use this information for internal review and product evaluation only. We never sell, transfer or trade this information unless we are compelled to do so by law.

We may gather and store additional information available to us on failed login attempts and other activity we consider a threat to our system. In these cases, we will share this information with other companies, agencies and law enforcement officials as we determine necessary or as we are required by law.

Protecting Children's Online Privacy:

We do not knowingly collect, nor is our ClientConnections site designed or directed to use, personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without containing verifiable consent from their parents. Should a child whom we know to be under the age of thirteen (13) send personal information to us, we will only use that information to respond directly to that child, seek parental consent or provide parental notice.

Liability for Unauthorized Transfers:

Tell us at once if you believe your password has been lost or stolen and immediately change your password from within ClientConnections. Calling is the best way to notify us immediately. You could lose all the money in your account. The Foundation uses “Ordinary Care” in its security measures to prevent unauthorized transactions. Our use of Ordinary Care will transfer the burden and risk of loss under your ClientConnections account to you.

If you believe your password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call:

Applicable Law:

These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the State of Oklahoma without regard to conflicts of laws and principles.

Interpretation:

If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations contained herein, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms of Use shall continue in effect.

You may not assign any of your rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise. We may assign our rights and privileges under these Terms of Use (including your user registration), without your consent in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of our assets, or to an affiliate, or in connection with a change in control.
