The software you use can affect the security of your online activities. You should watch for warnings about security "holes" or "bugs" that may affect the software and Web browser you are using. It is a good practice to regularly check for software updates on the web site of your browser manufacturer.
For your protection, we require that you "Sign in" when using secure areas of our Web sites and recommend that you "Sign out" when you are done. You should not leave your computer unattended while logged in. However, as added protection, we will automatically log you out if there has been no online activity for a period of time.
We recommend you close your browser after using secure online services like conducting financial transactions. This will ensure that any information temporarily stored in your browser is erased, preventing others from viewing this information later.
We store your login information and passwords in a protected and secure environment, isolated from the Internet so they cannot be accessed or downloaded by unauthorized individuals. You too, should ensure that this information is kept secret and safe.
Your password grants access to your personal information and services online. You don't want someone else to easily guess this information.
Keep your information secure and protect yourself against identity theft. Identity thieves steal your personal information and use it to obtain funds or credit in your name. Identity theft can take months to detect and it can take just as long to correct the damage.
To protect yourself from identity theft do not give thieves an opportunity to steal your information. Keep important information in a safe place. Only share personal information with trusted third parties. Monitor bills and statements and when discarding sensitive information ensure it is shredded.
If you suspect you are a victim of identity theft, file a report with the police immediately. Ask for a copy so that you can provide the evidence to the various companies you have to contact. Then contact your bank representative to ensure all credit cards and accounts are secured.
