We may also collect and store other information you provide to us, such as review feedback or contact information.

Once you register for any service available through our websites, you agree to the terms of the service agreement. You agree to review the terms regularly, and your continued use of the site means you agree to any changes.

Digital Banking User Account Deletion

Fortress Bank digital banking customers may request the deletion of their mobile and web banking app user account and associated data.

How do I request the deletion of my user account?

Please visit our Contact Us page and complete the fields on the form including a message requesting the deletion of your digital banking user account. Our digital banking team will confirm and complete your request and notify you when the account has been deleted.

Does the deletion of my Digital Banking user account close my Fortress Bank accounts?

No. The deletion of your digital banking user account removes your ability to sign into mobile or online banking to manage your Fortress Bank financial accounts. It does NOT affect the status of, or your access to, your Fortress Bank financial accounts via methods other than digital banking.

What Data is Retained by Fortress Bank?

When your Digital Banking user data is deleted, the digital banking system archives the deleted data to facilitate account recovery. The archived user data includes information that links your user account to your Fortress Bank financial accounts and your personalized digital banking settings. Archived user data cannot be used to access financial accounts or other protected information. Archived data is retained indefinitely.


We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes to our websites or services, or to accommodate new technology or legal requirements and guidelines.
