Protecting Your Privacy
Protecting your privacy is important to our institution and employees. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. In order to provide our customers with a broad range of financial products and services as effectively and conveniently as possible, we use technology to manage and maintain customer information. The following policy serves as a standard for all employees for collection, use, retention, and security of personal information.
What Information We Collect
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, our affiliates or others; and
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 and payment history.
What Information We Disclose
We are permitted under law to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to “nonaffiliated third parties” (ie., third parties that are not members of our corporate family) in certain circumstances. For example, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about you to such third parties to assist you in servicing your loan or account with us; to government entities in responses to subpoenas; and to credit bureaus. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about you to any other third parties; except as permitted by law.
Our Security Procedures
We also take 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. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
