Mobile Check Deposit
This Mobile Check Deposit Agreement (“Agreement”) is a contract that governs your ability to use the Mobile Check Deposit capture service (the “Service”) provided to you by Equity Bank (the “Bank”). As used in this Agreement, the terms “Bank,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to the Bank. The terms “you” or “your” refer to the account holder(s) authorized by the Bank to use the Service, all persons authorized to sign on the account holder’s deposit accounts, and anyone else who uses the Service with the permission of the account holder(s).
1) SCOPE OF AGREEMENT
This Agreement governs your use of the Service. The Service allows you to use a compatible camera-enabled mobile phone or device (“Mobile Device”) to scan original checks or other deposit items that meet our required standards (“Checks”) and electronically transmit images of the Checks and associated deposit information to the Bank for deposit to your designated account(s). The Service converts your scanned Checks into digital images, which are then cleared and presented for payment as either substitute checks, in accordance with the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (“Check 21 Act”) or electronically converted checks which are processed in accordance to the National Automated Clearing House Association rules (“NACHA”), or through other image exchange programs.
The terms and conditions in this Agreement are in addition to, and do not cancel, supersede or replace your application to use the Service, our notification of approval of your application, your Deposit Account Agreement, Mobile Banking Agreement and Disclosure, or any other agreements, rules, disclosures, procedures, standards, policies, or signature cards relating to your deposits, loans, services, or other business relationships with the Bank. Additionally, your use of the Service will be subject to all of the terms or instructions which may appear on-screen when you access the Service, or in user guides, and/or other information or documentation that the Bank may provide to you from time to time regarding the Service. Your use of the Service is also subject to, and you agree to comply with, the applicable rules and regulations of the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), all other applicable clearing house rules, regulations, operating circulars and agreements, the Check 21 Act, Office of Foreign Assets Control sanction laws, the Bank Secrecy Act, the USA PATRIOT Act, the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) as enacted in Kansas, and all other applicable state and federal laws and regulations, all as amended from time to time.
2) HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SERVICE
In order to use the Service, you must have a Mobile Device that is acceptable to us and a wireless plan from a compatible mobile wireless provider. You must also use the operating system(s) and software that satisfies all technical specifications and other requirements that we and/or our service provider(s) establish and specify. We and/or our service provider(s) may change these specifications and/or requirements from time to time.
Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, you are solely responsible, at your own expense, for purchasing, installing, operating, testing and maintaining all hardware and software necessary to use the Service. You must install and test your Mobile Device, your system, and any other required hardware and software before you make your first deposit through the Service. We are not responsible for any third party software that you may need to use the Service. You accept any such software “as is” and subject to the terms and conditions of the software agreement that you enter into directly with the third party software provider at the time of download and installation.
We are not responsible for providing, maintaining or servicing your Mobile Device or any other equipment for you, nor are we responsible for any costs you incur in using your Mobile Device or in accessing the Service. You agree that you will perform, or cause to be performed by properly trained personnel, all vendor recommended maintenance, repairs, upgrades and replacements.
We are not responsible for, and you release us from, any and all claims or damages resulting from, or related to, any computer virus or related problems that may be associated with using the Service, e-mail or the Internet. You agree that all images and files transmitted to us through the Service will contain no viruses or any other disabling features that may have an adverse impact on our network, data, or related systems.

Both the front and back of each Check must be transmitted to the Bank as provided in any user guide or other instructions provided to you by the Bank or the Service, including on-screen instructions. The Bank in its sole discretion may refuse to accept Checks that do not meet our image quality requirements. This includes, without limitation Checks where:

- xii) do not qualify as “original checks” as defined in Regulation CC.
- In the event that you breach any of these representations or warranties, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Bank and its agents harmless from and against all liability, damages, and loss arising out of any claims, suits or demands brought by third parties with respect to any such breach. You further authorize us to charge your account(s) for the amount of any claim, suit or demand that constitutes a breach of warranty claim under the provisions of Check 21, Regulation CC, and/or the Uniform Commercial Code.
Additionally, you acknowledge that the Bank may refuse to accept for deposit a check or draft issued by you, or by any other person on any of your accounts or any account on which you are an authorized signer or joint account holder, or any account of any business entity of which you are a principal, officer or authorized signer.
4) REJECTION OF DEPOSITS BY THE BANK
After we receive Check images and all other required deposit information from you through the Service, we shall provisionally credit your designated account for the total amount of such Checks. The provisional credit is subject to final payment of the Checks and is also subject to your Bank Account Agreement.
You agree that all deposits received by us are subject to verification and final inspection and may be rejected by us in our sole discretion, and you shall be liable to the Bank for any errors, inaccuracies, breach of warranties and any other loss sustained by, or claim made against the Bank relating to such deposits.
The Bank is not liable for any service or late charges that may be imposed against you due to the Bank’s rejection of any Check that you transmit for deposit through the Service. In all cases, you are responsible for any loss or overdraft plus any applicable fees to your account due to a Check being returned.
You acknowledge and agree that, while we normally provide notice of rejected deposits, we may reject any Check transmitted through the Service in our sole discretion without notice to you, and we will not be liable for any such rejection or failure to notify you of such rejection. If we reject a Check for remote deposit, you must physically deposit the original Check.
5) CHECKS RETURNED UNPAID
You are solely responsible for verifying that Checks that you deposit by using the Service have been received and accepted for deposit by the Bank. The Bank will provide you with notice of any deposits that it is unable to process because Checks were returned unpaid by the payor financial institution. You agree to accept such notices at your e-mail address on file with us, but we may choose any reasonable method for providing such notices to you. You agree to notify the Bank in the event you change or cancel your on-file email address.
In the event that the Bank credits your account for a Check that is subsequently dishonored and returned, you authorize the Bank to debit the amount of such Check plus any associated fees from the account. To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we shall debit the deficiency amount from any of your other account(s) with the Bank in our sole discretion. Our right to charge your account(s) will apply without regard to whether the Check was timely returned or whether there is any other claim or defense that the Check was improperly returned.
You understand and agree, since you will retain possession of the original check when using the Service, the original check will not be returned and the Bank may charge back an image of the Check, an ACH debit, or other electronic or paper debit, as applicable, to your account if the item is returned unpaid to the Bank. See Section 9 for retention requirements. You further agree that any image that we charge back may be in the form of an electronic or paper reproduction of the original Check or a substitute check.
You may not use the Service to deposit a substitute check and you may not deposit the original Check through the Service or in any other manner if you receive a dishonored Check. You agree to comply with any additional instructions we may provide to you in connection with returned Checks.
6) YOUR DUTY TO REPORT ERRORS
The Bank will provide you with periodic statements that will identify the deposits that you make through the Service. In addition, you may access the Bank’s Digital Banking service for information about your deposits, return items, deposit adjustments, Checks and other transactions on your accounts. You agree that it is your responsibility to review all such information that the Bank makes available to you in a timely manner to verify that deposits made through the Service have been received and accepted by the Bank and are accurate. Receipt of a Check by the Bank through the Service does not constitute an acknowledgement by the Bank that the Check is error-free or that we will be liable for the Check.
You agree to notify us promptly of any errors, omissions, or discrepancies in a deposit within the time periods established in your Bank Account Agreement.
You may notify us by e-mailing us at email@example.com or writing to the Bank at: 7701 E Kellogg, Ste 100, Attention Deposit Processing, Wichita, KS 67207 or telephoning us at 1-888-733-5041.
You agree to cooperate in any investigation by the Bank of any unsuccessful or lost transmission. Subject to applicable law, any failure by you to notify the Bank of any error, omission or other discrepancy in accordance with this Agreement and your Bank Account Agreement shall relieve the Bank of any liability for such error, omission or discrepancy.
7) AVAILABILITY OF THE SERVICE
The Service is generally available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. At certain times the Service may not be available due to system maintenance or technical difficulties, including those of the wireless service provider, the software, or circumstances beyond our control. If you are not able to use the Service to make deposits you may physically mail or deliver your deposits to the Bank through our branches or through certain of our ATMs. Deposit of original Checks at a branch of the Bank or an ATM shall be governed by the terms and conditions contained in your Bank Account Agreement and not by the terms of this Agreement. The Bank is not responsible for providing an alternate method of remote deposit if the Service is not available.
8) FUNDS AVAILABILITY
“Funds Availability” refers to your ability to use the funds that you deposit into your account through the Service. This funds availability policy only applies to deposits made using the Service. Deposits made at a branch location or ATM remain subject to the funds availability policy outlined in your deposit account agreement.
The funds for the Checks that you deposit through the Service may not be immediately available to you. In order to determine the availability of your funds, you will need to determine the date and time that the Checks and all required data and information are received by the Bank. You understand and agree that we shall not be deemed to have received a Check deposit through the Service until we notify you via onscreen messaging and/or e-mail that we received the Check deposit.
The deposit cut-off time for the Service is 6:00 PM Central Time (CT). The Bank reserves the right to change the cut-off time in its sole discretion. Such change shall be effective immediately and may be implemented before you receive notice of the change. You may contact us at any time to verify our current cut-off time. If you complete the scanning and transmission process and receive your deposit receipt, Checks that you deposit before the cut-off time on our business days will be considered as received that same business day. Checks that are received by us through the Service after the cut-off time on a business day, or on any day that is not a business day, will be considered as received by us on the next business day. For purposes of determining when a deposit is received, the Bank’s records shall be determinative.
Funds from Checks you deposit using the Service that are under $1,000 will generally be available on the next business day after the day the Bank received it. Funds from Checks you deposit using the Service that are $1,000 or greater will generally be available on the 5th business day. The Bank may delay availability of funds based on such factors as credit worthiness, the length and extent of your relationship with us, transaction and experience information, and such other factors as the Bank, in its sole discretion, deems relevant. 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. In general, funds delayed for the above reasons will be available no later than the 7th Business Day (Monday thru Friday, excluding federal holidays) after the day of your deposit. You agree that it is your responsibility to understand and build into your transmission schedules the appropriate deadlines necessary to meet our funds availability schedule.
We are not liable for transactions you initiate before the funds are available for your use. Until the funds are made available, you may not withdraw the funds in cash and we may not use the funds to pay items that you have written or honor other withdrawals you request. If we pay items that you have written or honor other withdrawals before funds are available to you, we may charge a fee for this. Even after the item has “cleared,” we have made funds available to you, and you have withdrawn the funds, you are still responsible for items you deposit that are returned to us unpaid and for any other problems involving your deposit.
9) STORAGE, SECURITY AND DESTRUCTION OF ORIGINAL CHECKS
You agree that once a Check has been deposited through the Service, the original Check is your property and not the property of the Bank. You shall securely store the original Check for a reasonable period, not to exceed 14 days, after you receive a deposit receipt through the Service that the Check has been accepted. While the original Check is in your possession, you agree to use a high degree of care to safeguard the original Check and related files against security risks. Security risks include, without limitation, the theft or reproduction of the original Check or unauthorized use of the information on the Check or in the file. You shall take appropriate security measures to ensure that: a) only authorized persons shall have access to the original Check; b) the information contained on the Check shall not be disclosed to unauthorized persons; and c) the original Check will not be duplicated, will not be scanned more than one time, and will not be presented, deposited or negotiated again in any way. Upon request by the Bank you will promptly provide to the Bank a retained original Check, or a sufficient copy of the front and back of the Check in form acceptable to us, to aid in the clearing and collection process, or to resolve claims by third parties, or for our audit or fraud loss prevention purposes.
After the 14 day retention period expires, you shall destroy the original Check by shredding it or by any other permanent deletion manner that does not allow the original Check to be accessed by an unauthorized person(s) and in a manner that the original Check is no longer readable or capable of being reconstructed. After destruction of an original Check, the image will be the sole evidence of the original Check.
You agree to be responsible to us for any losses, costs, expenses, and damages we may incur as a result of your failure to comply with the provisions of this Section.
10) PROHIBITION AGAINST PRESENTING CHECKS MORE THAN ONCE
Once you have used the Service to deposit a Check you agree not to present, or allow anyone else to present, that original Check or a substitute check of that original Check again for deposit through the Service or by any other means. If you or anyone else present a Check or substitute check for deposit more than once, in violation of this Agreement, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Bank harmless from and against all liability and damages that may result from any claims, suits or demands from third parties with respect to such Check or substitute check.
You agree that we may debit from your Bank account the aggregate amount of any Checks that that are deposited more than once. To the extent that funds in your account are insufficient to cover such amount, we shall debit the deficiency amount from any other of your account(s) with the Bank in our sole discretion.
11) COMPLIANCE WITH LAW; PROHIBITED ACTIVITIES
You agree to use the Service for lawful purposes and in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
You are prohibited from engaging in, and you represent and warrant to the Bank, that you do not and shall not engage in, any business or activity that: a) would result in your being or becoming a money service business that regularly cashes third party checks, sells money orders, or handles wire transfers or other financial services for third parties; b) would result in your accepting restricted transactions in connection with another person in unlawful Internet gambling; c) would result in the Bank being used as a conduit for money laundering or other illicit purposes; or d) would directly or indirectly result in any activity or use of the Service that may be illegal or fraudulent.
12) YOUR FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The Bank may request financial and other information from you from time to time in order to evaluate the risks of providing the Service to you. You agree to promptly provide any such financial and other information we request. You authorize the Bank to review your financial information, including consumer reporting agency reports, before we authorize you to use the Service and for as long as you use the Service. If you do not provide any requested financial or other information, or if we determine that the credit, security or other risks of continuing to provide the Service to you are not acceptable, we may immediately terminate your access to the Service without prior notice.
13) BANK’S DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Our duties and responsibilities are limited to those described in this Agreement, your Bank Account Agreement, and any other agreements governing your account(s). We shall exercise reasonable due care in performing our responsibilities under this Agreement. We agree to transmit all the financial data under our control that is required for you to use the Service and to act on appropriate instructions that we receive from you in connection with the Service. We shall exercise reasonable due care in seeking to preserve the confidentiality of your user ID, password, and/or other code or identifier and to prevent the use of the Service by unauthorized persons. We shall not otherwise be liable or responsible for any loss you incur or damage you suffer as a result of any unauthorized person accessing or using the Service.
You agree that implementation by us of our standard procedures for maintaining the confidentiality of customer information, and where practicable, our obtaining similar undertakings from any third parties who are engaged in installing, maintaining, or operating the Service, shall constitute fulfillment of our obligation to exercise reasonable due care. You assume full responsibility for the consequences of any misuse or unauthorized use or access to the Service or disclosure of any of your confidential information or instructions by your employees, agents, or other third parties.
We shall not be responsible for suspension of performance of all or any of our duties or responsibilities under this Agreement if at any time, or from time to time, such performance is prevented or hindered by, or is in conflict with, any federal or state law, regulation or rule, or court order. We shall not be responsible or liable for any loss you incur or damage you suffer in the event of any failure or interruption of the Service or any part of the Service, resulting from the act or omission of any third party, or from any other cause or circumstance not reasonably within our control.
14) SERVICE FEES
Currently we do not impose any fees for the Service. We reserve the right to impose fees for the Service in the future and we will notify you of any such fees, in the manner and to the extent required by this Agreement and by law. Your use of the Service after the effective date of any fee changes shall constitute your agreement to such fee changes. You also understand and agree that you are responsible for any wireless service provider charges and any and all other fees and charges that you may incur by accessing and using the Service. If we do impose fees for the Service in the future, you may avoid these fees by notifying us of your intent to discontinue the use of the Service (if monthly fee; no notice required for per Check fee) and deposit checks at an ATM (if available) or at a branch office.
15) YOUR REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
In addition to your representations and warranties contained in other provisions of this Agreement, you represent and warrant that:
- a) Each Check you deposit through the Service will be an item as defined in the Kansas UCC Article 4, and that item, once negotiated by You, carries your transfer and presentment warranties as described in said UCC;
- b) Each image of a Check you transmit to us is a true and accurate rendition of the front and back of the original Check, without any alteration, and the drawer of the Check has no defense against payment of the Check.
- c) You are authorized to enforce each Check you transmit for deposit or are authorized to obtain payment for each Check on behalf of a person entitled to enforce such transmitted Check.
- d) You are solely responsible for any and all financial risk that may be associated with your use of the Service, including without limitation the risk that a Check will be returned for insufficient funds.
- e) You are solely responsible for the instructions you provide to the Bank and for failing to properly access or use the Service, including without limitation input errors.
- f) You will not deposit or otherwise endorse to a third party the original Check, and no person will receive a transfer, presentment, or return of, or otherwise be charged for, the original Check or a paper or electronic representation of the original Check such that the person will be asked to make payment based on an item that has already been paid.
- g) You will only transmit acceptable items for deposit and have handled the original items in accordance with applicable laws, rules and regulations.
If you breach any of these representations and warranties, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Bank, its shareholders, parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, and its and their successors, heirs and assigns harmless from and against any and all liability, damages, or losses arising from any claims, suits or demands from third parties with respect to such breach. You further authorize the Bank to debit your account for the amount of any such claim, suit or demand that results from a breach of warranty claim under the provisions of Check 21, Regulation CC, and/or the Uniform Commercial Code. You will maintain funds in your account(s) in amounts and for a period of time as we determine in our sole discretion to cover any outstanding Checks and your obligations for returns of Checks, warranty claims, fees and other obligations. If any such liabilities exceed the amount in the applicable account(s), we may charge such excess against any of your other accounts at the Bank and you will pay us any amount remaining unpaid immediately upon our demand.
16) YOUR AUTHENTICATION METHOD
You agree that we are entitled to act upon instructions we receive with respect to the Service under your user ID, password, test key or other code or authentication method that we require (these components are referred to herein collectively as your “Authentication Method”). You are liable for all transactions made or authorized with the use of your Authentication Method.
We have no responsibility for establishing the identity of any person who uses your Authentication Method.

This Section applies to external funds transfers from accounts held with us to external accounts held with other depository institutions. To the extent we make them available, you authorize us to establish one-time funds transfers in accordance with the request that is made. You must have enough available money or credit in any account from which you instruct us to make a transfer. All transfers will be made in U.S. Dollars. When initiating an external transfer, you may be asked to reauthenticate your logon credentials prior to completing the external transfer.
If any accounts you choose to make an external transfer from are money market deposit accounts or savings deposit accounts, certain types of withdrawals from those accounts, including payments and transfers, are limited for any specified period. The specified period for money market deposit accounts is the monthly statement period. The specified period for savings deposit accounts is a calendar month. The kinds of withdrawals covered by this limitation are those made by means of preauthorized or automatic transfers and payments or telephone agreement, order or instruction. A limit on the total number of these kinds of withdrawals may be made by check, draft, debit card, or similar order payable to third parties.
Transfers are not final at the time we receive your instructions, but we will begin to process them promptly. You should allow at least one (1) Business Day for the transfer to post to your account(s). Please note that for external fund transfers, the time for completion and posting of the transfer may be extended due to processing times and delays by other financial institutions and intermediaries. We will not be responsible for any delay regarding a funds transfer due to any processing time or delay of other financial institutions and intermediaries.
Each transfer will be posted to any account from which it is initiated, and to any other account that is involved in the transaction, on the Business Day on which the transfer is completed. Each transfer you make on a non-Business Day, or after our digital banking cut-off time on any Business Day, will be considered initiated on the following Business Day. Our digital banking cut-off time for external transfers is 5:00 p.m. Central Time.
If you want to change transfers you have instructed us to make, you must notify us before we have started processing the transaction. The normal way to do this is for you to access the appropriate function in our Digital Banking Services no later than the day before the Business Day the transfer is scheduled to be made, and either delete it or make the change.
You may also call or write us at the phone number or address listed below, or by using any method which we provide for changing transfers.
