6. Eligible Items. You agree to capture and deposit only “checks” as that term is defined in Federal Reserve Regulation CC (“Reg CC”).

  • Checks or items payable to any person or entity other than the person or entity that owns the account that the check is being deposited to.
  • Checks previously deposited and returned (for example, “non-sufficient funds” or “refer to maker”)
  • Checks or items containing obvious alteration to any of the fields on the front of the check or item (including the MICR line), or which you know or suspect, or should know or suspect, are fraudulent or otherwise not authorized by the owner of the account on which the check or item is drawn.
  • Checks payable jointly, unless deposited into an account in the name of all payees.
  • Checks that are not in their original form with a signature, such as a substitute check (as defined in Reg. CC) or image replacement document

Otherwise, we will consider that the deposit was made on the next business day we are open. Funds deposited using the Services will generally be made available on the first business day after the day of deposit.

10. Disposal of Transmitted Items. Upon receipt of a confirmation from First Pryority Bank that we have received an image that you have transmitted, you agree to prominently mark the item as “Electronically Presented”, “VOID”, or otherwise render it incapable of further transmission, deposit, or presentment. You agree never to re-present the item. You agree to retain the check for at least 45 calendar days from the date of the image transmission. After 45 days, you agree to destroy the check that you transmitted. During the time the retained check is available, you agree to properly handle the check and upon request, promptly provide it to First Pryority Bank.

11. Deposit Limits. We reserve the right to and may establish limits on the dollar amount and/or number of items or deposits from time to time. If you attempt to initiate a deposit in excess of these limits, we may reject your deposit. If we permit you to make a deposit in excess of these limits, such deposit will still be subject to the terms of this Agreement, and we will not be obligated to allow such a deposit at other times.

14. Errors in Transmission. By using the Services you accept the risk that an item may be intercepted or misdirected during transmission. First Pryority Bank bears no liability to you or others for any such intercepted or misdirected items or information disclosed through such errors.
