Privacy Policy


At NorthSide Community Bank the basis of each customer relationship is trust. Through our Web site, we strive to provide valuable information to you about how we may serve you, and whether you are a valued customer or someone shopping for new bank services, we hope our site answers your questions about our products & services and hours.

As a visitor to our Web site, you need not be concerned about the privacy of your personal information. Our site is not designed to collect personally identifying data on visitors.

We may collect "nonpublic personal information" about you from the following sources:

Information we receive from you on applications or other loan and account forms
Information about your transactions with us or others
Information we receive from third parties such as credit bureaus

"Nonpublic personal information" is nonpublic 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, payment history, and overdraft history.

We do collect and store information about the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, such as or, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked to us. Other than that, we collect information on visitors only in the aggregate and use it for internal review purposes only. This information simply enables us to tell which areas of the site are of most interest to our users, which avenues of site promotion are most effective, and when peak usage times are.

We are permitted to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to other third parties in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about you to third parties to assist us in servicing your loan or account with us, to government entities in response to subpoenas, and to credit bureaus. If you decide to close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.

The bank also takes steps to safeguard customer information. We restrict access to your personal and account information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. Employees who violate these safeguards will be subject to disciplinary measures. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

To provide better service or to address any potential security issues, we will occasionally use a "cookie". A cookie is a small piece of information, which a web site stores on your computer's browser for later retrieval. A web site other than the one that placed the cookie is unable to read the cookie. NorthSide Community Bank may use cookies for a variety of purposes, for example, to store your password so that it does not have to be entered each time you visit our site, or to store your preferences for certain kinds of information. Most cookies only last through a single session, or visit. No cookie will contain information that will enable anyone to contact you via telephone, electronic mail, or regular mail. You can set your web browser to inform you when cookies are established or to prevent cookies from being set.
