Accessing Your Bank Accounts through Fidelity eBanking

To access your account through Fidelity eBanking you must complete an enrollment form online and have an eligible Bank Account (Checking Account, Money Market Checking, Savings Account, and/or loan). Once Fidelity Bank has processed your enrollment and verification you will be ready to begin banking online.

The activation Access ID and Password are case-sensitive.  Your Password must be 8-12 characters in length and at least one character must be numeric and one alpha.  Do not give your password to anyone or write it down where it could be accessible to another person. We strongly urge you to avoid using common and easy to decipher passwords such as birth dates, last names, account numbers or social security numbers and storing your password and access ID in the memory of your computer.

When you give someone your access ID and password, you are authorizing that person to use the service and you are responsible for all transactions the person performs using the service. All transactions that person performs, even those transactions you did not intend or want performed, are authorized transactions. If you notify us that the person is no longer authorized, then transactions that person performs after the time you notified us are considered unauthorized. You agree to assume responsibility for all transactions through the service with your Fidelity Bank access ID and password, up to the limits allowed by applicable law.

Transactions that you or someone acting for you initiates with fraudulent intent are also authorized transactions.

Bill Pay Service

Bill Payment services are an optional service and will be offered when you log into Online Banking. Through Fidelity eBanking you can arrange for the payment of your current, future, and recurring bills up to the balance in your account. There is no limit to the number of payments that may be authorized. You may pay a merchant or individual approved by Fidelity Bank for payment through Fidelity eBanking bill pay. We are unable to process any payments to federal, state, or local tax agencies.

By furnishing us with the names of your payees/merchants and their addresses, you authorize us to follow the payment instructions to these payees/merchants that you provide us. You may pay an unlimited number of payees using online bill pay. When we receive a payment instruction, we will remit the funds to the payee on your behalf from the funds in your selected account on the day you have instructed them to be sent (“Payment Date”).  However, we shall not be obligated to make any such payment unless your account and/or overdraft protection plan has sufficient funds or credit available to pay the bill on the Payment Date. Funds from all bill payments (whether these payments are made electronically or by check) will be withdrawn from your account on the payment date specified.

You have the right to stop or change any scheduled payment. You must cancel the payment by no later than 2:00 p.m. (Central Time), on the Payment Date by calling Fidelity Bank Bill Pay Support at (866) 321-7215 or Customer Service at (940) 763-2100. If your stop payment order is given to the Bank orally, you may be required to confirm it within 14 days of your oral notification. If so, this written confirmation should be sent to Fidelity Bank, Customer Service, 2525 Kell Blvd, Suite 100, Wichita Falls, TX 76308. Your oral notification will cease to be binding if you fail to confirm it in writing within 14 days.

Any payments made with Fidelity eBanking bill pay require sufficient time for your payee to receive the payment and credit your account properly. To avoid incurring a finance charge, you should schedule a payment at least 7 full business days prior to the date the payment is due at your payee.

If you have timely scheduled a bill payment as required above and Fidelity Bank does not properly complete a bill payment on time or in the correct amount, we will pay any late fees or finance charges as long as your account was in good standing with the merchant prior to this incident. We will also be liable to you, to the extent provided by law, if we fail to stop a payment pursuant to your timely order to do so as set out above. We shall not be responsible for any charges imposed or any other action taken by a payee resulting from a payment that you have not scheduled properly, including any applicable finance charges and late fees. We will not be responsible for any charges imposed or any other action taken by a payee resulting from a payee incorrectly crediting an account. In addition, we will not be liable if any third party through which any bill payment is made fails to properly transmit the payment to the intended payee. We will also not be liable if there are insufficient funds or credit availability in your designated payment account and/or overdraft protection plan; if a legal order directs us to prohibit withdrawals from the payment account; if the payment account is closed or frozen; or if any part of the electronic funds transfer system is not working properly. We will not be liable for any amounts other than as stated above and, specifically, will not be liable for any other direct, indirect, special, or consequential damages arising out of the use of Fidelity eBanking Bill Pay.

Fidelity Bank reserves the right to terminate your use of Fidelity eBanking Bill Pay at any time.

If, for any reason, you should wish to cancel Fidelity eBanking, we strongly suggest that you cancel all future bill payments at the same time that you cancel your service by calling Fidelity Bank Bill Pay Support at (866) 321-7215 or Customer Service at (940) 763-2100. We will automatically delete all outstanding payment orders (all individual payments and all recurring payments) once we have been notified that your service has been terminated. We will continue to maintain your accounts until you notify us otherwise.

THE BANK WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY UNAUTHORIZED PAYMENT OR TRANSFER MADE USING YOUR ACCESS ID AND PASSWORD THAT OCCURS BEFORE YOU HAVE NOTIFIED US OF POSSIBLE UNAUTHORIZED USE AND WE HAVE HAD A REASONABLE OPPORTUNITY TO ACT ON THAT NOTICE.
