Limits

Limits are set as an additional element of safety when performing payment operations via the internet bank. By default, unless indicated otherwise for the internet bank, the limits are set as follows: limit of one operation - EUR 50 000, daily limit – EUR 300 000.

Subsequently, limits can be changed in accordance with the planned volumes of payments, both for a specified period, following which the limits will be returned to the previous level, and for an indefinite period – until further orders.

Digital Certificate

To work with the internet bank in full access mode, one can use the digital certificate which is available as part of the Rietumu ID package.

The digital certificate is an electronic file which performs the functions of a conventional passport or ID on the internet. The digital certificate is also the equivalent of the customer's signature and seal. The validity of the certificate is five years from the generation date. Upon the expiry of this term, the certificate must be renewed by applying to the bank.

The certificate guarantees the integrity of the provided information, reliable identification of the customer and the safe transfer of data between the customer and the bank.

Usage of the certificate makes payment authorisation simpler and faster, but it may require additional settings on the computer – installation of the digital certificate and free Oracle Java.

For users who experience difficulties in working with the certificates, it is recommended to use the Digipass DP700 device.
