Important Information About Procedures For Opening a New Account:
Section 326 of the US PATRIOT ACT: To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
We employ a variety of electronic, physical, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information including a 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your personal information when it is in transit between your web browser and our web server or vice versa. Your encrypted, personal information is located and stored in secure areas within our building and any offsite data processing facilities. Access to your personal information (either physically or online) is limited to you and our employees who have a "need to know" in order to perform a secure lending experience.
