Terms and Conditions


When you browse this site and its pages, you’re saying “yes” to our terms of use. So, please take a moment to read them over. If they don’t work for you, it’s best not to use this site or its pages. Also, keep in mind that not all of our products and services are available everywhere. Whether you can use a specific product or service is ultimately up to Fortress Bank and its subsidiaries or affiliates.


When you use any of Fortress Bank’s websites or pages (yep, that includes www.bankfortress.com and any other sites we’ve got), you’re saying “I agree!” to our Terms of Use. Just so you know, these websites are ours, along with everything on them.


You need to accept these terms as they are if you want to hang out on our site.

Heads up: there are some important sections below about warranties, liabilities, and how we solve disagreements. Be sure to check those out.

Overall, we promise to keep things fair and square – that’s our deal.


Sure can! We might tweak these terms now and then. It’s on you to stay updated, so check back once in a while. If you keep using the site after we post changes, that means you’re cool with the new terms. Stick to these rules, and you’re golden to use our site as much as you like, just for you.


Each Fortress website, including this one, might have its own extra rules (like codes of conduct or guidelines) that apply to certain features, products, or offers. If there’s a conflict between these Terms of Use and any terms on another Fortress website, the terms on that site will take precedence for those specific pages or sections.

Remember, all use of this site is governed by applicable federal, state, and territorial laws. The information or content on the site isn’t meant to be security, tax, or legal advice, and it can’t be used to avoid tax penalties. Fortress doesn’t provide security, legal, or tax advice, so it’s a good idea to review your individual circumstances with your own legal and tax advisors, professionals, or consultants.

Lastly, these Terms of Use are interpreted according to the laws of the State of Illinois. Any legal proceedings to enforce or interpret these terms can only be brought in Illinois.

Some features or services on the site might need you to open an account with a username and password. You are responsible for keeping your account information, including your password, private and for all activity on your account. You agree to set up reasonable security measures to protect your confidential information.

When you’re using this site, Fortress Bank’s Internet Privacy Policy, Privacy Policy, and other online security and privacy practices apply.

Also, it’s important to remember that internet transmissions are never 100% private or secure. This means that any message or information you send to the site could potentially be read or intercepted by others. This is true even if there’s a special notice saying that a particular transmission (like account information) is encrypted.


Fortress doesn’t guarantee that the site or any of its content, services, or features will be error-free or uninterrupted, or that any defects will be corrected, or that your use of the site will provide specific results. Fortress doesn’t warrant the accuracy, completeness, quality, adequacy, or content of any information or tool on the site or any other webpage or website linked or referenced on the site. The site and its content are provided “as-is” and “as-available”, and all information on the site is subject to change without notice.

Fortress can’t ensure that any files or other data you download from the site will be free of viruses or contamination or destructive features.

Fortress also disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions, and conduct of any third parties in connection with or related to your use of the site and/or any Fortress services.

You’re responsible for your use of the site and any linked sites. If you’re not satisfied with the site or any content, your only remedy is to stop using the site or any such content.

The above disclaimer applies to any damages, liability, or injuries caused by any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, communication line failure, theft, or destruction of or unauthorized access to, alteration of, or use, whether for breach of contract, tort, negligence, or any other cause of action.

This is true even if you’ve used the information, documents, software, or content on the site, and even if you knew there was a chance of such damages.


Fortress aims to give you the best information to make good financial decisions. Sometimes, Fortress might link to websites owned by other companies (third-party websites). These links are just for your information and use at your own risk. Fortress doesn’t endorse or guarantee anything on these third-party websites and isn’t responsible for their content or accuracy.

When you visit a third-party website through a link on Fortress, you’re no longer protected by Fortress’ privacy policies or security practices. The third-party website might collect, use, and protect data differently than Fortress does. So, before you give them any personal information, make sure you understand their privacy policy and security practices.

If you do a transaction on a third-party website, Fortress won’t represent you or the owner of the third-party website.

Here’s are some ways you can tell if you’ve left the Fortress site:

  • The URL in your web browser is different.
  • The third-party website opens in a new window or tab and looks different from the Fortress website.
  • The logo, navigation tools, or information at the bottom of the webpage belong to a different company.

Fortress is dedicated to giving you quality online services. If you find any incorrect information on Fortress or have concerns about a link to a third-party website, please email us.


When you use any online banking or account linking service on the site, you’re giving Fortress and its agents permission to access third-party sites that you’ve chosen. They can retrieve information that you’ve asked for. By doing this, you’re appointing Fortress and its agents to act on your behalf for this specific task. Each time you log into your account, you’re allowing Fortress and its agents to process your request and use the information you’ve submitted.

Fortress might share your information (including your identity) if it’s needed for an investigation or complaint about your use of the site, or to take legal action against someone who might be harming Fortress’ rights or property, or the rights or property of the site’s visitors or users. Fortress can always disclose any information it thinks is necessary to follow any law, regulation, legal process, or government request.

Fortress might also share your information when the law requires or allows it, including sharing information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection purposes. You agree that Fortress can keep any messages or communications between you and Fortress through the site, and might also disclose such data if the law requires it or if Fortress decides that it’s reasonably necessary to:

  • Follow legal process.
  • Enforce these Terms of Use.
  • Respond to claims that any such data violates the rights of others.
  • Protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Fortress, its employees, users of or visitors to the Site, or the public.

You agree that Fortress can, at any time and without prior notice, end your access to the site and/or block your future access to the site if we decide that you’ve violated these Terms of Use or other agreements or guidelines related to your use of the site, or for other reasons, which might include:

  • Requests by law enforcement or other government agencies.
  • A request by you (like if you delete your account yourself).
  • Changes to or discontinuation of the site or any service offered on or through the site.

If there’s any claim or dispute related to these Terms of Use or your use of the site, it will be settled by binding arbitration. This will be managed by the American Arbitration Association and will take place in the State of Illinois. The arbitration will be governed by the United States Arbitration Act. A single, neutral arbitrator will decide on the claim and give a final award. All arbitration proceedings, information submitted to the arbitrator, and the decision or award will be strictly confidential. Any court with jurisdiction can enter judgment upon the award given by the arbitrator.

The procedures in this section are the only procedures for resolving disputes between the parties related to your use of the site. However, a party can request temporary remedies in a court of law to maintain the status quo or protect goods or property until the arbitration has started and the selected arbitrator has had the chance to resolve the request for temporary relief.

Each party must continue to perform its obligations under these Terms of Use while any dispute related to these Terms of Use and your use of the site is being resolved, unless doing so would be impossible or impracticable.
