We will safeguard and protect this information at all times. In the event you close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will follow the privacy policies and practices as described in this notice. This Statement is provided for the purpose of informing you of how we gather and protect your information.

Collection of Customer Information:

We obtain nonpublic personal information about you when you conduct a transaction with us, such as opening an account or applying for a loan, check card or credit card. Information may be obtained directly from you, from credit bureau agencies and from other credit references you may supply to us.

We may collect the following kinds of information about you:

  • 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, such as your account balance, payment history, parties to transactions and credit card usage; and
  • Information we receive from a consumer-reporting agency, such as information relating to your creditworthiness and credit history.

We obtain only information that is necessary to administer our business and is allowed by law.

Use of Customer Information:

Personal and financial information about customers is used only for very specific purposes:

  • To identify persons involved in transactions and to guard against unauthorized access to funds or information, and to protect customers' accounts;

  • To help us identify and avoid potential risks or losses to ProBank.

Maintaining Information:

We have established procedures and controls to ensure that information used is accurate, current and complete in accordance with industry standards. Our procedures are designed to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner whenever it is discovered. We request that you notify us in writing of any changes in your personal information (i.e. address, phone, etc.)

Employee Access to Information:

Access to your personal information is only available to those employees with a legitimate need to know. Employees are trained to handle all information in a confidential manner. All employees must adhere to our Code of Ethics as a requirement for continued employment.

Protection of Information by Established Security Procedure:

ProBank will make every reasonable effort to maintain the highest level of security against any unauthorized access to your financial information. In this regard, we will use tight security procedures, employee training, and technology.
