(a) Service of any lawful process in any judicial or administrative proceeding against the foreign bank or any of its successors which arises out of the foreign bank's activities in this state shall be made on the superintendent by delivering to and leaving with him or her, or with any official having charge of his or her office, duplicate copies of such process, notice, or demand.

(c) The superintendent shall keep a record of all processes, notices, and demands served upon him or her under this section and shall record therein the time of such service and his or her action with reference thereto.
