Effective May 2021
Sauk Valley Bank is committed to safeguarding our customer’s personal information by practicing responsible information sharing and utilizing stringent security measures. This Online Policy describes how information is collected when you visit our website, our mobile applications and other online platforms we own or operate (the “Sites”).
This cookie allows us to process multiple transactions during your session without requiring you to re-enter your passcode for each transaction. The cookies for online banking simply provide another level of security for our internal banking product. We also require 128-bit encryption to access our online banking product, the most secure available.
When you log on to Sauk Valley Bank Online Banking, for the security of your account information, we recommend you not select the ‘remember me’ check box; however, if you do, a cookie is sent to your hard drive. This ‘remember me’ cookie enables you to shortcut the login process when you visit Sauk Valley Bank Online.
In the future, to assist us in our marketing program and provide you with products and services of interest to you, we may send you email messages. This not only provides you insight into some new product offerings, it also allows us to verify your account and provide you an extra layer of security. Visitors to our website remain anonymous. We do not collect identifying information about you unless you voluntarily provide it and knowingly provide us that information. We do collect general information about your visit, such as when you accessed our site, what pages you visited, and the Internet provider you use. But, this is done in summary format with no identifying of the user. You may elect to provide us more specific information, such as when you give us feedback or send us an email. If this occurs, the information is only used internally.
In order to provide you with our online banking products, we use the services of third party vendors. By contract, these third party vendors must maintain the confidentiality and privacy of your information.
We may update this Online Policy to reflect changes to our information practices. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our Online practices. If you continue use of our website after changes to this Policy are made and in effect, you agree to the revised Policy.
