Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Services, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other Services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, helping diagnose server problems and administering the Services.

6. Linked Websites

The Services may contain links to third-party websites not controlled by First Bank of the Lake. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Services and to read the privacy policies and terms of use of any such websites that may collect your personal information, as they will likely differ from those of the Services. First Bank of the Lake does not guarantee and is not responsible for the privacy or security of these websites, including the accuracy, completeness or reliability of their information.

In addition, First Bank of the Lake is not responsible for the information collection, use and disclosure practices (including the data security practices) of other organizations, such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, BlackBerry or any other application developer or provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer.

7. Data Security

Your privacy is very important to First Bank of the Lake and we are committed to protecting your personal information from unauthorized access or use. We will use reasonable organizational, physical, technical and administrative measures to protect personal information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.

In addition, First Bank of the Lake protects customers from liability for unauthorized online transactions. Certain conditions and limitations may apply. See your Deposit Account Agreement and your Online and Mobile Financial Services Agreement for details.

8. Preventing Identity Theft

In order to help us protect your personal information, it is important that you always keep your account information safe. Never share your personal ID, password or PIN with anyone, under any circumstances.

Note that First Bank of the Lake will never initiate (unless otherwise stated for a specific product or Service application), a request via email for your sensitive information (e.g., Social Security number, personal ID, password, PIN or account number). If you receive an email asking for your sensitive information, you should be suspicious of the request and promptly contact us to report the suspicious activity.

Please be aware, however, that in certain telephone and in-person transactions we may ask for your full Social Security number, account number or other information to verify your identity before conducting the transactions you have requested. For example, we may ask for such information to verify your identity when you place a call to us, when you visit First Bank of the Lake or when we call you about a new product or Service we believe that you will find valuable. We will never request that you disclose your personal ID, password or PIN under any circumstances, including such telephone or in- person transactions.

Additional information regarding identity theft and the steps you can take to help protect yourself from fraud can be found on the Federal Trade Commission website.


9. Children’s Privacy

We do not use the Services to knowingly solicit personal information from or market to children under the age of thirteen (13) without parental consent. We request that such individuals do not provide personal information through the Services. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should promptly contact us and we will delete such information from our files. For additional information regarding the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), please visit the Federal Trade Commission website.

10. External Aggregation Services

You have the responsibility to help us protect your accounts by never revealing your username, password, or other credentials to any person or third party. By providing your username, password or other credentials to any person or third party (including an aggregation service) you authorize that person or third party to initiate transfers to or from your account.

Some third-party companies offer aggregation services that allow you to consolidate your financial account information from a variety of sources, such that you can view all your account information at a single online location. For example, an aggregation service might collect and consolidate your checking and savings account balances at your bank, the value of your stocks and bonds in your brokerage account and your frequent flier mileage information from an airline. In order to do so, the aggregator may request access to personal information - including identification information, account information, personal IDs and passwords - from you for each individual website.

Please use caution when providing personal information to an aggregation service. By providing your username, password or other credentials to an aggregation service you authorize that person or third party to initiate transfers to or from your account.

Should you decide to revoke the authority you have given to an aggregation service, you should notify the aggregation Service in addition to contacting us, in which case we may need to block your account until we issue new access codes.

11. Retention Period

We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required by law.

12. Cross-Border Transfer

The Services are controlled and operated by us from the United States and are not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any country or territory other than that of the United States.
