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.
