Nonpublic Personal Information means information about you that we acquire in connection with furnishing you a financial service or product. To help the government control the financing of terrorism and money laundering schemes, Federal law requires all financial institutions to acquire, validate, and record data that identifies every person who opens an account. Hence, when you open an account, we will require you to furnish your name, address, date of birth, and other data which will allow us to identify you. We will also request you to show us your driver’s license or other identifying papers.
Nonpublic personal information does not include information which is available from public archives, such as telephone directories or government documents. Hereafter, we will use the term “information” to mean nonpublic personal information as already defined in this section.
An affiliate is a firm we own or manage, a firm which owns or controls us, or a firm which is owned or controlled by the same company that owns or controls us. Ownership does not necessarily mean absolute ownership, but owning enough of the company to have management control.
A nonaffiliated third party is a person we do not employ or a firm which is not affiliated to us. We refer to this also as a nonaffiliated third party, or simply as an “other party”.
We gather information about you from these sources:
We do NOT divulge any data about you to anyone, except as allowed by law. This might include disclosures necessary to process your account, undertake joint-marketing or prevent illicit transactions.
Destruction of Sensitive Data. All records and information are carefully shredded before disposal. Destruction of documents is undertaken by authorized employees and/or bonded firms when the shredding of huge quantities of records is necessary.
We confine access to data about you to staff members who need to know that information to furnish products or services to you. We keep physical, electronic, and procedural protection to secure this information.
