Internet Home Banking site, this means protecting your access
codes and changing them frequently.
Our home banking database is a private system
operated for the exclusive use of our members. We use SSL encryption
and digital server authentication to insure the privacy of your
information when sending data between our home banking server and
your home computer.
All home banking logins are logged by the
server. For authenticated members who use home banking, we collect
and store certain information such as how often you visit the home
banking section, dates and times of visits and which pages are being
used. We use this information for internal review and product evaluation
only. We never sell, transfer or trade this information unless we
are compelled to do so by law.
We may gather and store additional information
available to us on failed login attempts and other activity we consider
a threat to our system. In these cases, we will share this information
with other companies, agencies and law enforcement officials as
we see fit.
