Online Banking Cookies

The Bank uses cookies during your Online Banking Session. For example, to identify the state you are banking in so that we do not ask you to enter your state information more than once. We may also use information regarding the state you are banking in to help us deliver you offers for products and services tailored to you. Cookies are also used for security purposes in conjunction with our Site Key service to recognize your computer. Any time a cookie is used, personal information is encrypted and used solely to support your Online Banking activity.

Some websites use technologies similar to cookies to store information. For example, the Bank also uses files called Flash Objects in connection with Online Banking. This is used to help assure security as part of our Site Key service. As with cookies, we never store personal information unless encrypted.


Collecting Personally-identifiable Information

When you visit our Web site, we may collect the following information in order to service your accounts, save you time and money, and better respond to your needs:

Application information

Information that you provide to us online in applications and other forms. Examples include your assets, income and debt.

Security and Fraud

The Bank is committed to ensuring the security of your information. We have put in place safeguards designed to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, the information collected online. However, we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, or alteration or destruction of data or personal information. Be sure read and understand Website Usage and Mobile Usage Agreement before using these products.
 
One of the best ways to avoid fraud is to become an educated consumer. Please utilize the information on this and other sites to protect yourself.
 
E-mail can be used for sending scams such as a false offer from a company or an alert about a false computer virus. These e-mails are often forwarded with good intention by friends, adding an erroneous level of legitimacy. If you receive an e-mail that you think could be a scam, do not forward it and delete it immediately. If you receive an e-mail warning that a new computer virus is circulating, check the website of any one of the well-known anti-virus software companies for validation.
 
Emails such as these are most likely from criminals who send thousands of emails at a time to random addresses. These criminals are trying to entice the recipient to visit a phony website and provide personal and confidential information, such as online IDs and pass codes, or Social Security numbers and account numbers. Although the site may look like a bank's, it is not—which is why this practice is known as "spoofing."


Changes to the Online Practices Privacy Policy

If we make changes to the Online Practices Privacy Policy or make any material changes to our online services, we will revise the Online Practices Privacy Policy to reflect such changes and revise the policy's effective date.
