Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking Terms and Conditions
Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking Terms and Conditions (Last Updated September 30, 2022)
a. Program: Fidelity Bank offers our customers mobile access to their account information (e.g., for checking balances and last transactions) over the Short Message Service (SMS), as well as the option to set up alerts for their accounts (e.g., low balance alerts). Enrollment requires identification of the user’s banking relationship with Fidelity Bank as well as providing a mobile phone number. The mobile phone number’s verification is done by the user receiving an SMS message with a verification code which they will have to enter on the Financial Institution’s website. Additionally, customers may select the type of alerts and other preferences which will determine, together with their account data, the frequency of alerts delivered to the customer. This program will be ongoing. Standard messaging charges apply. Customers will be allowed to opt out of this program at any time.
b. Questions: You can contact us at email@example.com or 1-855-547-1385, or send a text message with the word “HELP” to this number: 31727. We can answer any questions you have about the program.
c. To stop the program: To stop the messages from coming to your phone, you can opt out of the program via SMS. Just send a text that says “STOP” to this number: 31727. You’ll receive a one-time opt-out confirmation text message. After that, you will not receive any future messages.

Fidelity Bank Mobile Deposit Agreement (rev 8/2020)
PLEASE CAREFULLY REVIEW THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING.
This Mobile Deposit Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into by Fidelity Bank and you (the “Consumer”). The Agreement governs your use of the Mobile Deposit Service offered by Fidelity Bank (the “Service”). By enrolling to use the Service, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and with the terms of the agreement governing the bank accounts which you access using Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking. To cancel the Mobile Banking service, you must notify Fidelity Bank and provide your name, address, and the effective date to stop Service. You may notify Fidelity Bank by one of the following methods:
- By calling 1-855-547-1385 Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm Eastern Time
- By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- By writing a letter and sending it to the following address: Fidelity Bank, Attention: Deposit Operations, PO Box 8, Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526
Description of Service. Mobile Deposit allows you to deposit money into certain Fidelity Bank accounts with your mobile device camera using the Mobile Application or “Mobile App”. To use Mobile Deposit, you must be a Fidelity Bank account holder and have agreed to the Online Banking and Mobile Banking User Agreements. You may transmit deposits to us electronically only from a mobile capture device located in the United States.
Fees. Depending on the type of account(s) you have with Fidelity Bank, there may be a fee to use this service. If applicable, you agree to pay the fee for the Service as set forth in our fee schedule which may be changed from time to time. Internet data usage rates may apply from your Internet service provider or mobile carrier. Any applicable fees for the Deposit Services may be changed by us at our discretion at any time upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, to the extent required by applicable law. If you continue to use the Deposit Services after the fee becomes effective, you agree to pay the service fee that has been disclosed to you, as may be amended from time to time. If the account that you designated for the deposit and fee is closed or does not have sufficient available funds to cover the fees, you authorize us to charge any such fees to any other deposit account you maintain with us.
Equipment. To use Mobile Deposit, you must have a supported mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet that is compatible with the Mobile Deposit App. The device must have a camera and a supported operating system, a data plan, and the downloaded App. We do not guarantee that all mobile devices and operating systems are compatible with the Service.
Types of Checks. You can only deposit checks using Mobile Deposit; however, there are some checks that you cannot deposit. These include:
- Checks payable to any person or entity other than you, or to you and another party.
- Checks containing any alteration of which you know or believe to be fraudulent or not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check is drawn.
- Checks that are not in original form with an original signature, such as substitute checks or remotely created checks.
- Clicks drawn on a financial institution located outside the United States.
- Checks not payable in United States currency.
- Checks or items on which a stop payment order has been issued or for which there are insufficient funds.
- US Postal Money Orders, MoneyGram, other Money Orders and US savings bonds.
- Traveler’s Cheques.
- Convenience checks or checks drawn on a line of credit.
Receipt of Deposits. We reserve the right to reject any check transmitted through the Service, at our discretion, without liability to you. Fidelity Bank is not responsible for processing or transmission errors that may occur, or for deposited items that we do not receive.
Cut-Off Times for Deposits. Deposits sent using Mobile Deposit may be “submitted” any time of day, weekend, or holiday. However, deposits received by us after the daily cut-off time for electronic deposits will be deposited the next business day, provided that the deposit meets all requirements. Deposits submitted on holidays or weekends will also be deposited the next business day, provided all requirements are met. The daily cut-off time for electronic deposits is 5:00 p.m. Eastern time and is subject to change without notice to you.
Availability of Funds Deposited. Our policy is to make funds from your deposits available to you on the first business day after the day we receive your deposit. Once they are available, you can withdraw the funds in cash and we will use the funds to pay checks that you have written. For determining the availability of your deposits, every day is a business day except Saturdays, Sundays, and federal holidays. In some cases, we will not make all of the funds that you deposit by check available to you on the first business day after the day of your deposit. We will mail you a notice the day after we receive your deposit or the day after we make the decision to delay the availability of funds and tell you when the funds will be available. In addition, funds you deposit by check may be delayed for a longer period under the following circumstances:
- There are problems with a check image transmitted or the check appears to be a duplicate.
- We believe a check you deposit will not be paid.
- You deposit checks totaling more than $5,525 on any one business day.
- You redeposit a check that has been returned unpaid.
- You have overdrawn your account repeatedly in the last six months.
- There is an emergency, such as failure of communications or computer equipment.
In these circumstances, the first $225 will be available the day after your deposit. We will notify you if we delay your ability to withdraw funds for any of these reasons, and we will tell you when the funds will be available.
SPECIAL RULES FOR NEW ACCOUNTS
If you are a new customer, the following special rules may apply during the first 30 days your account is open.
Funds from cashier’s, certified, traveler’s, and federal, state and local government checks will be available on the first business day after the day of your deposit if the deposit meets certain conditions. For example, the check must be payable to you.
Funds from the deposit of all other checks will be available by the seventh business day after the day of your deposit.
HOLDS ON OTHER FUNDS
If we accept for deposit a check that is drawn on another bank, we may make funds from the deposit available for withdrawal immediately but delay your availability to withdraw a corresponding amount of funds that you have on deposit in another account with us. The funds in the other account would then not be available for withdrawal until the time periods that are described elsewhere in this disclosure for the type of check that you have deposited.
Image Quality. The front and back images of an item transmitted to us must be legible. Items with poor image quality may delay the deposit process, and you may be instructed to deposit the check using other methods. You agree that we shall not be liable for any damages resulting from items with poor image quality, including those related to rejection of, or the delayed or improper crediting of such a check, or from any inaccurate information you supply regarding the check or item.
Errors. You must notify us of any errors, or suspected errors, related to the items deposited through the Service as soon as possible after they occur, and in no event later than 30 days after the related account statement is sent. You can contact us by calling or visiting a branch, or by calling 855-547-1385. Unless you notify us within 30 days, the account statement containing the deposits made through the Services is deemed correct, and you cannot bring a claim against us for any alleged errors.
Deposit Limits. We may establish limits on the number of checks and/or the total amount of checks deposited using Mobile Deposit (see fee schedule). These limits may change from time to time without notice. Items transmitted that exceed your limits may result in a rejection of the deposit.
Endorsements. You agree to restrictively endorse any item transmitted through Mobile Deposit with the signature of payee and by designating the item as “For Mobile Deposit Only Fidelity Bank” or as otherwise instructed by us.
Destruction of Original Check. Upon confirming that you received full credit for the check deposited, you must destroy the check by shredding or other means, or clearly mark “VOID”. This prevents the check from being presented for deposit another time. You agree never to re-present to us or any other party a check or item that has been deposited through the Service. You will be liable for checks that are presented and/or deposited more than once.
Indemnity. You warrant to Fidelity Bank that:
- You will only transmit eligible checks and items that you are entitled to, and ensure that all checks and items include all required signatures.
- Images will meet Fidelity Bank’s image quality standards.
- You will not transmit an image or images of the same check or item to us more than once and will not deposit or negotiate, or seek to deposit or negotiate, such check or item with any other party.
- You will not deposit or re-present the original check for deposit.
- All information you provide to us is accurate and true, and all transmitted images accurately reflect the front and back of the check.
- You will comply with this Agreement and all applicable rules, laws and regulations.
- You will use the Services only for your own deposits.
- You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Fidelity Bank from any loss for breach of this warranty provision or the terms of this Agreement.

You are responsible for (i) maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Mobile Devices, access number(s), password(s), security question(s) and answer(s), account number (s), login information, and any other security or access information, used by you to access the Service, and (ii) preventing unauthorized access to or use of the information, files or data that you store, transmit or use in or with the Service. You agree not to supply your Access Information to anyone and to immediately notify us if you become aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of any access information, including your Mobile Devices. We reserve the right to deny you access to the Service if we believe that any loss, theft or unauthorized use of access information has occurred.
Limitations. When using Mobile Deposit, you may experience technical or other difficulties that are outside the control of Fidelity Bank. We are not responsible for damages that you may incur as a result of these difficulties or unavailability of the Service.
Changes to the Service. We reserve the right to terminate, modify, add and remove features from the Service at any time in our sole discretion. You may reject changes by discontinuing use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service will constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such changes. Maintenance to the Service may be performed from time to time, resulting in interrupted service, delays or errors in the Service and we shall have no liability for any such interruptions, delays or errors.
Termination. We may turn off the service to you if you have not signed into Mobile Banking for 90 days, if we suspect fraud, if you misuse Mobile Deposit, have excessive overdrafts or returned items or for other reasons at our sole discretion.

You agree that Fidelity Bank and its Third Party Service Providers, including Fiserv Solutions, Inc., retain all ownership and proprietary rights in the Service, associated content, technology, and website(s).

Fingerprint Login for Mobile Banking.
Fingerprint Login is an optional fingerprint sign-in method for Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking that may be available for certain Apple® (via Touch ID™) and Android® mobile devices that have a built-in fingerprint scanner. To use Fingerprint Login, you will need to first save your fingerprint on your mobile device (for more help with fingerprint scanning, contact the manufacturer that supports your mobile device.). Fingerprints are stored on your device only and Fidelity Bank never sees or stores your fingerprint information. You acknowledge that by enabling Fingerprint Login, you will allow anyone who has a fingerprint stored on your device access to your personal and payment account information within Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking. Fidelity Bank reserves the right to suspend or disable this feature at any time. Fingerprint Login can only be associated with one Mobile Banking username at a time on a device. If your device doesn’t recognize your fingerprint, you can sign in using your standard login credentials (e.g. password). To use Fingerprint Login for Mobile Banking on multiple devices, you will need to set it up for each device. You can enable or disable Fingerprint Login anytime within Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking.
Apple and Touch ID are trademarks of Apple Inc. Android is a trademark of Google Inc.
Card Controls Additional Terms
The card management feature (“Card Controls”) is offered by Fidelity Bank (referred to herein as “bank”, “us”, “we” or “our”) for use by Fidelity Bank cardholders. Fidelity Bank’s Card Controls feature is intended to allow You to initiate certain debit card related activities for Your enrolled Fidelity Bank debit card(s) via the Card Controls feature. Those activities may include but are not limited to the ability to:
- Register the card
- Activate and deactivate the card
- Set control preferences for card usage including location, transaction, and merchant types, spend limits, and card on/off (“Controls”)
- Set alert preferences for card usage including location, transaction, and merchant types, spend limits, and declined purchases (“Alerts”)
- View transaction history including cleansed and enriched merchant information (e.g., merchant name, address, and contact information)
- Report Your card as lost or stolen
- Review Your spending by merchant type and/or by month
- View a list of merchants storing Your card information for recurring or card-on-file payments
The Card Controls feature may enable access to Fidelity Bank and third parties’ services and web sites, including GPS locator websites, such as Google. Use of such services may require internet access and that You accept additional terms and conditions applicable thereto, including, with respect to Google maps, those terms and conditions of use found at http://maps.google.com/help/terms_maps.html and the Google Legal Notices found at https://www.google.com/help/legalnotices_maps/, or such other URLs as may be updated by Google. To the extent the Card Controls feature allows You to access third party services, Fidelity Bank and those third parties, as applicable, reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, limit, or disable access to any of those services at any time without notice and without liability to You.
You agree to allow us to communicate with You via push notification, SMS and/or email, with respect to the activities performed via the Card Controls feature. Data fees may be imposed by Your mobile provider for the transmission and receipt of messages and Alerts.
Fidelity Bank reserves the right to send administrative and service notifications via emails and/or SMS messages to the email address and/or phone number provided upon enrollment in Fidelity Bank’s Card Controls feature.
Availability/Interruption. You acknowledge that the actual time between occurrence of an event (“Event”) triggering a selected Control or Alert and the time the notification of such event is sent to Your mobile device (“Notification”) is dependent on a number of factors including, without limitation, Your wireless service and coverage within the area in which You are located at that time, and any notification settings on Your mobile device (e.g., “Do not Disturb”, “Silent mode”, or “Focus mode”). You acknowledge that Notifications of Events may be delayed, experience delivery failures, or face other transmission problems. Similarly, selection of Controls and Alerts (collectively, “Commands”) are likewise affected by the same or similar factors and problems could arise with use of Commands. Notifications of Events may not be available to be sent to Your mobile device in all areas.
If You registered to receive Notifications to Your mobile device, the Card Controls feature is available when You have Your mobile device within the operating range of a wireless carrier with an appropriate signal for data services. The Card Controls feature is subject to transmission limitations and service interruptions. Fidelity Bank does not guarantee that the card management feature (or any portion thereof) will be available at all times or in all areas.
You acknowledge and agree that certain functionality with the Card Controls feature may not be available for all transactions. Commands based upon the location of the mobile device where the card management feature is installed or the location of the merchant where the card is being attempted for use may not apply appropriately to card-not-present transactions or transactions where the location of the actual location of the merchant differs from the merchant’s registered address.
You acknowledge and agree that neither Fidelity Bank nor its third-party services providers (including the developer of the technology enabling the Notifications) are responsible for performance degradation, interruption or delays due to conditions outside of its control. You acknowledge that neither Fidelity Bank nor its third-party service providers shall be liable to You if You are unable to receive Notifications on Your mobile device in Your intended area. Fidelity Bank, for itself and its third-party service providers, disclaims all liability for: any delays, mis-delivery, loss, or failure in the delivery of any Notification; any form of active or passive filtering.
Digital Wallet Provisioning. Digital wallet provisioning (or sometimes, “push provisioning”) refers to securely adding a card to a device’s digital wallet (i.e., Apple Pay or Google Pay). While cards can be manually added to these wallets by inputting the card details or by scanning the physical card, You may also opt to add your card programmatically (“provisioning”) through Card Controls.
- Security considerations of wallet provisioning. Once added to a device’s digital wallet, these digital cards will be accessible and can be used at participating merchants by anyone that has access to the digital wallet (i.e., anyone that has access to the respective mobile device, smart watch, etc.). Using a card through a digital wallet is not restricted by the login credentials of the Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking app, but rather by any existing security measures on the device (e.g., facial or fingerprint scanners, passcodes, or in some cases, no security measures). In short, a digital card can be used by individuals that might not have access to Your App but have access to a shared device.
- Impact of activation status of the card. Both activated and pre-activated cards can be wallet provisioned. In any case, the permanent card details will be provisioned. As such, You will not have to re-provision Your card after it is activated.
Digital Issuance (Personal Debit Cards Only). The bank may issue, or re-issue, Your personal debit card in a digital manner in addition to the physical card mailed to You. To facilitate wallet provisioning of pre-activated cards, the Bank will deliver the digital card to You via text message and/or present the digital card via Card Controls in Your App.
- Digital issuance Via Web. This is a web-based journey that allows You to transact with Your newly issued card (i.e., securely view Your new card’s details and/or push Your new card to your digital wallet) before receiving and activating Your physical card. This delivery method does not require You to set up login credentials with the App. You will be able to securely access Your card through a combination of limited-life access code and two factor authentication of Your Social Security Number and a one-time password sent to You in real-time. This experience is subject to its own data sharing and collection policies. Additionally, this experience includes features that allow for wallet provisioning to Apple Pay and Google Pay, and We bear no responsibility for the data use and data collection policies of these websites.
- Digital Issuance Via Card Controls. The digital card will be available via Card Controls in the App. You will be able to transact with your newly issued card (i.e., securely view Your new card’s details and/or push Your new card to your digital wallet) before receiving and activating Your physical card. This delivery method does require You to log into the App and authenticate before card details are presented and/or before the card can be pushed to the digital wallet.
Delivery of SMS Alerts. In order for SMS communications to be sent to Your mobile device, You must (i) own or be an authorized user of a two-way SMS-capable mobile device that is registered on a supported wireless carrier network, (ii) ensure that Your mobile account remains in good standing with Your wireless carrier and (iii) ensure that any device-level notification settings on Your mobile device (e.g., “Do not Disturb”, “Silent mode” or “Focus mode”) do not interfere with timely SMS alert delivery. Additionally, You are solely responsible for any additional charges that might be incurred from Your wireless carrier.
Biometric Authentication. In addition to the SMS-based authentication, certain sensitive features provide an additional option to You to use Your mobile device’s biometric scanners (e.g., facial or fingerprint recognition) for authentication. Card Controls does not store or transmit any biometric information, but merely leverages the mobile device’s built-in biometric authentication capabilities.
Geolocation Data Use. Card Controls periodically collects, transmits, and uses geolocation information to enable features that prevent fraudulent card use and send alerts, but only if You explicitly opt into these features. Depending on the level of location permission You give the App, the geolocation information might be shared on a continuous basis in the background, or only while the App is in use, or not at all. You can change Your location permissions at any time in Your device settings, and/or disable the location-based features. Lastly, this location information is not used for any advertising or tracking purposes, and is not shared with any vendor or advertising platforms.
Advertising and Advertising-Related Tracking. Card Controls and Digital Issuance Via Web do not maintain cookies, IP addresses, or track users for any advertising-related features, and neither is any user data shared with third-party advertising vendors or platforms. User data is only collected and maintained to provide critical functionality related to the transaction history, card management and session management of the user.
Fidelity Bank Alerts Terms and Conditions
Alerts. Your enrollment in Fidelity Bank Online Banking and/or Mobile Banking (the “Service”) includes enrollment to receive transaction alerts and notifications (“Alerts”). Alerts are electronic notices from us that contain transactional information about your Fidelity Bank account(s). Alerts are provided within the following categories:
- Mandatory Alerts provide you with important account notifications, such as information about changes to your Online Banking password, PIN, or login information. You do not have the option to suppress these Mandatory Alerts.
- Account Alerts provide you with notification of important account activities or when certain changes are made to your Service accounts. These Alerts are automatically activated for you. Although you may suppress these Account Alerts, we strongly recommend that you do not do so because they provide important information related to your Service accounts.
- Additional Alerts must be activated by you to be enabled. These Additional Alerts can be accessed from the More menu within Fidelity Bank Mobile Banking.
Account Alerts and Additional Alerts must be managed and/or added online through the Service. You cannot maintain all Alerts through your mobile device. We may add new Alerts from time to time, or cancel old Alerts. We usually notify you when we cancel Alerts, but are not obligated to do so. Fidelity Bank reserves the right to terminate its Alerts service at any time without prior notice to you.
Methods of Delivery. We may provide Alerts through one or more channels (“EndPoints”): (a) a mobile device, by text message; (b) a mobile device, by push notification; (c) an email account, by an e-mail message; or (d) your Fidelity Bank Online Banking message in-box, by an e-mail message. You agree to receive Alerts through these EndPoints, and it is your responsibility to determine that each of the service providers for the EndPoints described in (a) through (c) above supports the email, push notification, and text message Alerts provided through the Alerts service. Please be advised that text or data charges or rates may be imposed by your EndPoint service provider. Alert frequency varies by account and preferences. You agree to provide us a valid mobile phone number or email address so that we may send you Alerts. If your email address or your mobile device’s number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Your Alerts will be updated to reflect the changes that you communicate to us with regard to your primary and secondary email addresses or mobile device number.
Alerts via Text Message. To stop Alerts via text message, text “STOP” to 31727 at any time. Alerts sent to your primary email address will be unaffected by this action. To restore Alerts on your mobile phone, just visit the Alerts tab in Fidelity Bank Online Banking and click the box next to your mobile number for the Alerts you’d like to receive again. For help with SMS text alerts, text “HELP” to 31727. In case of questions please contact customer service at 1-855-547-1385. Our participating carriers include (but are not limited to) AT&T, SprintPCS, T-Mobile®, U.S. Cellular®, Verizon Wireless, and MetroPCS.
Limitations. Fidelity Bank provides Alerts as a convenience to you for information purposes only. An Alert does not constitute a bank record for the deposit or credit account to which it pertains. We strive to provide Alerts in a timely manner with accurate information. However, you acknowledge and agree that your receipt of any Alerts may be delayed or prevented by factor(s) affecting your mobile phone service provider, internet service provider(s) and other factors outside Fidelity Bank’s control. We neither guarantee the delivery nor the accuracy of the contents of each Alert. You agree to not hold Fidelity Bank, its directors, officers, employees, agents and service providers liable for losses or damages, including attorneys’ fees, that may arise, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from (a) a non-delivery, delayed delivery, or the misdirected delivery of an Alert; (b) inaccurate or incomplete content in an Alert; or (c) your reliance on or use of the information provided in an Alert for any purpose.
Alert Information. As Alerts delivered via SMS, email and push notifications are not encrypted, we will never include your passcode or full account number. You acknowledge and agree that Alerts may not be encrypted and may include your name and some information about your accounts, and anyone with access to your Alerts will be able to view the contents of these messages.
Privacy and User Information
Data Analytics. You acknowledge that in connection with your use of Mobile Banking, Fidelity Bank and its affiliates and service providers, including Fiserv, Inc. and its affiliates, may receive data about your usage of the service (such as session length, number of transactions and geolocation), and other data and information provided by you or from other sources in connection with Mobile Banking or the Software. Fidelity Bank and its affiliates and service providers will maintain reasonable safeguards to protect the information from unauthorized disclosure or use, but reserve the right to use and disclose this information as reasonably necessary to deliver Mobile Banking, perform analytics to improve the service, and as otherwise permitted by law, including compliance with court orders or lawful instructions from a government agency, to protect the personal safety of subscribers or the public, to defend claims, and as otherwise authorized by you.
