FNBM Online Banking is brought to you by First National Bank Moçambique S: A ("us", "we", "the Bank"), an authorised Financial Services Provider.
These terms and conditions as amended from time to time ("the Terms") govern our respective rights and obligations when you use FNBM Online Banking and come into effect when you register for FNBM Online Banking or once you access FNBM Online Banking, whichever occurs first.
All products and services provided by the Bank are subject to their own terms and conditions ("product agreements") such as your debit card terms and conditions ("bank card terms") as well as account or facility terms and conditions ("other terms") and your use of those products and services will also be subject to those additional bank card terms and other terms.
These Terms (governing the use of FNBM Online Banking) must be read together with and form part of each product agreement. In the event of conflict between these Terms and the bank card terms, the provisions of the bank card terms or other terms will prevail to the extent of the conflict.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion to amend (including without limitation, by the addition of new terms and conditions) these Terms at any time and from time to time.
For convenience only, the date on which these Terms were last amended is shown below the main heading of these Terms.
For security, identification and verification purposes, when using FNBM Online Banking, you will make use of a variety of access codes for different purposes, such as your confirmation code, User ID and Password. These are all called your "access codes".
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and secrecy of your access codes secret. Only you may use your access codes. Do not keep your access codes together with other FNBM Online Banking documents.
If you call the FNBM Online Banking helpline, we may, for the purposes of identification and verification, request certain information such as your account or card number. However, there will never be a reason for the FNBM Online Banking helpline or any of our staff, to request or know your Password.
If you believe your access codes have been compromised, you must immediately contact the FNBM Online Banking helpline on 800 014 014 and request that they deactivate your access codes. You must keep any reference number given to you by the FNB Online Banking helpline as verification of your notification to us of any such compromise.
Until you notify us to deactivate your access codes we will not be responsible or liable for any transactions that are performed without your knowledge or consent and you hereby indemnify us from any loss and damages you suffer as a result.
FNBM will not under any circumstances be liable for any loss or damages you may suffer as a result of a compromise of your access codes through your actions, negligence and/or behavior.
We are committed to ensuring the security of your use of FNBM Online Banking and are entitled to investigate any loss suffered by you which is alleged to have occurred as a result of fraud via the website. Such investigation may include a forensic audit of your personal computer and / or any other electronic tool used for online banking by yourself. You therefore, without any limitation, authorise FNBM to conduct a forensic audit on your personal computer and / or any other electronic tool you may have used for online banking, which audit will be confined to the purposes of this agreement.

Because we communicate through the Internet, you agree that we are entitled to assume that you have authorised all transactions once your access codes have been entered. This will not apply once we receive notification from you to disable access to your accounts as a result of your access codes having been misplaced or lost or stolen and you have a reference number as verification of such notification. Our records of your transactions will be proof of any instruction you have given us, unless you can prove the contrary.
You are responsible for giving correct information and instructions when registering for FNBM Online Banking and when conducting transactions on the website.
We do provide you with an opportunity to review the entire transaction, to correct any mistakes and to withdraw from the transaction, before finally submitting any transaction.
