This document outlines our privacy policy for visitors to our web site, regardless of the application used to establish the link, as well as for consumers who have a continuous relationship with us, such as deposit account, loan, or safe deposit box.

Visitors to Our Web Site. As a visitor to our web site, you remain anonymous, unless you register for a service or otherwise elect to disclose their identity to us, for example, logging into Online Banking. Although we do not collect personally identifying information about persons who simply visit our site, we may collect certain limited information about visitors, such as their IP address (a numeric address assigned automatically to computers when they access the Internet). We also may place "cookies" on a computer to track a visitor's use of our web site. A cookie is a piece of data that is stored on your hard drive. It takes up very little room on your system and helps us to customize our site and make its navigation easier for you. We sometimes use cookies to help estimate the number of visitors to our site and to determine which areas are the most popular. Unless you register with us for a service (such as our online banking service), the cookie does not provide us with any personally identifying information about you, such as name or address.

Please note: If you would prefer, you can choose to not accept cookies. (Follow your browser’s instructions for disabling or deleting cookies). If you choose to turn cookies off, you may limit the ease with which you may be able to navigate web sites, or you may not be able to access all or part of the Site.

Web Browser “Do Not Track” Signals. We do not respond to Web browser “do not track” signals at this time because we do not allow third parties to collect personally identifiable information of visitors to our web site to track their online activities.

Our Collection of Information About You. We may collect nonpublic personal information about you in order to understand your needs, administer our business, process transactions, and provide you with products and services. We obtain nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources when you request or obtain services from us:

  • Information we receive from you on applications or other forms (such as your name, address, social security number, assets and income);
  • Information about your transactions with us or others (such as your account balance, payment history, parties to transactions, and credit usage); and
  • Information we receive from a consumer reporting agency (such as your creditworthiness and credit history).
  • Location

Our Disclosure of That Information. We may disclose information about you, your accounts and transactions: (a) where it is necessary or helpful to effect, process or confirm your transactions; (b) to verify the existence, history and condition of your account for credit reporting agencies; (c) to comply with legal process, such as subpoenas and court orders; (d) to law enforcement authorities if we believe a crime has been committed; (e) if you give us your consent; and (f) as otherwise permitted by law.

We do not disclose nonpublic personal information about our current or former customers to others, except as set forth in our Policy Notice.

State Rights. Depending on where you live, you may have additional privacy protections under some state laws. For example, certain state laws may restrict the types of information we may disclose about you, limit the parties with whom we may share such information, or require us to provide you with additional notices or opt-out rights. We will comply with applicable state laws before sharing nonpublic personal information about you. We may do this by sending a separate notice of those rights to you.

Maintaining Accurate Information. We have procedures in place that help us to maintain the accuracy of the personally identifiable information that we collect. Please contact your branch or account representative, or call us at 1-626-288-8118, if you believe that our information about you is incomplete, out-of-date, or incorrect. You may also login to your account online to update your email address.

Information Security. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who have a need to know such information (e.g., to process your transactions or provide services to you). We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

Links to Other Web Sites. Our web site may feature links to third party web sites that offer services or information. When you click on one of these links, you will be leaving our site and will no longer be subject to this policy. We are not responsible for the information collection practices of the other web sites that you visit and urge you to review their privacy policies before you provide them with any personally identifiable information. Third party sites may collect and use information about you in a way that is different from this policy.

Minors. We feel strongly about protecting the privacy of children. As such, we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 through our web site.
