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:
"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 Compuserve.com or ATT.net, 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.
If you choose to contact us via e-mail, please keep in mind that your e-mail address, and any other information your e-mail header shows about you, such as your name or organization, will be revealed to us in the e-mail. Messages you send to us by email are subject to viewing, alteration and copying by potentially anyone on the internet. We encourage you to send confidential correspondence through either the Postal Service or by using the telephone to speak directly with our employees. Additionally, the information you request from our web site about your accounts can only be accessed with your personal codes. It is your responsibility to keep your codes confidential. We pledge, however, that when you communicate with us via e-mail, we will use your e-mail information only for the specific purpose of responding to your comments or questions. Your e-mail address will not be sold, nor will it be shared with others outside the bank unless we are compelled to do so by law.
