The following privacy principles were established to maintain the security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal financial information.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
We collect nonpublic personal information about you from account applications, transactions (for deposits, loan, ATM, etc.), consumer reports and our websites. This information is used to establish and administer your accounts, to satisfy certain regulatory and legal requirements and to make available products, services and other opportunities to our customers. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. We do not sell or share customer information with marketers. When we contract with another company (indirect dealers or contractors) to perform certain services for us, we will require the other company to keep customer information confidential.
“Nonpublic personal information” is nonpublic personal information about you that we obtain in connection with providing a financial product or service to you. For example, nonpublic personal information includes information regarding your account balance or payment history.
HOW IS THAT INFORMATION PROTECTED?

Our employees are educated about the importance of maintaining confidentiality and customer privacy. If necessary, we take appropriate disciplinary steps to enforce our employee’s responsibility to protect your very personal information.
In order to prevent unauthorized access to your information, we maintain security standards and procedures that conform with industry practices. These security standards and procedures are routinely tested to verify the integrity of our systems.
