Verified by Visa TERMS OF SERVICE

Thank you for choosing FirstBank for your banking needs. We understand that you have many choices when it comes to finding a financial services provider. Please read this Terms of Service Agreement ("TOS") before using Verified by Visa. You should also save or print a copy for future reference. This TOS sets out important information about Verified by Visa and how your information is used to verify the authenticity of your transaction. In this TOS, "we," "us," or "our" refers to FirstBank, and "you," "your," or "yours" refers to the cardholder who uses or authorizes another person to use the Verified by Visa service. Use of Verified by Visa is also subject to the FirstBank Deposit Account Agreement ("Agreement") which governs use of your FirstBank debit card.

    1. FirstBank provides its Verified by Visa service subject to the following TOS. The TOS may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time on our website: In addition, when using Verified by Visa, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to this service that may be posted from time to time on the same website. The amended TOS will automatically become effective immediately after it is posted on our website.
    2. You agree that use of Verified by Visa will represent your acceptance of this TOS and that continued use of Verified by Visa after you have been advised of revisions to this TOS shall constitute your agreement to such revised terms and any applicable posted guidelines or rules. You must cancel your transaction or use an alternative payment method if you do not want us to verify it using Verified by Visa, or if you do not accept this TOS in its entirety. If you have questions about this service or TOS, please contact us at 303-237-5000, or 1-800-964-3444 if outside the Denver metropolitan area.
    3. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment, enhance or otherwise modify Verified by Visa shall be subject to this TOS.
    4. We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, Verified by Visa (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
    5. Upon our request, you agree to sign a non-electronic version of this TOS.
    1. Verified by Visa provides increased security when conducting online transactions. If your FirstBank debit card is used online at a participating merchant, we may ask certain questions to confirm the identity of the individual performing the online transaction. These questions are meant to reduce the incidence of fraud on your account.
    2. These questions are based on information which we already hold about you. If we need to authenticate you during an online transaction prior to authorizing a payment, the authentication questions will be generated by our service provider, using information it obtains from us or from third party credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. We may give information about you to any party which assists us in providing the Verified by Visa service.
    3. If you're unable to or do not wish to answer the questions presented for authentication (for example if you do not agree to or accept this TOS in its entirety), your payment will not be processed. Once your payment is cancelled, you will need to use an alternative method of payment if you wish to proceed with your online purchase.
    4. Verified by Visa also may be used for record keeping and reporting purposes, as well as to help resolve any transaction disputes. Additionally, we may provide law enforcement or regulatory authorities information obtained in connection with the Verified by Visa service to allow them to investigate suspected fraud, financial crimes or other criminal offenses. Otherwise, we will only use your information in accordance with our Privacy Policy. The full Privacy Policy is available for your review at
    1. Not all online retailers participate in the Verified by Visa service. Only purchases through participating retailers are subject to this additional Verified by Visa security layer.

You should always make sure that you make online purchases through reputable retailers.
    2. In order to use Verified by Visa, you must have the ability to access the World Wide Web and must pay any service fees associated with such access.
