The Bank of Fairport Privacy Policy

I. DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION
The Bank of Fairport will not share and/or sell individual customer information to any unaffiliated third party for marketing purposes.

Customer information will only be disclosed to authorized account holders, and only after identification of that account holder has been verified. Verifying information may include social security number, date of birth, place of birth, mother's maiden name, signature, and/or other identifying information. If the information request is made over the telephone and we are uncertain about the identity of the person requesting the information, we will ask that the request be made in writing or in person.

The Bank of Fairport employees will not share personal or financial customer information with unaffiliated third parties except when legally required (in order to comply with federal or state laws/regulations, and government or court orders) or when legally permitted to serve the customer's interests (such as disclosure to reputable credit reporting agencies). Information will only be disclosed to third parties under the following conditions:

  • Where it is necessary to complete a transaction initiated by the customer.
  • In order to report the existence and condition of an account to companies such as reputable credit bureaus.
  • In order to comply with government or court orders.
  • If we have the written permission of the account holder.
     

 The Bank of Fairport will provide certain customer information to unaffiliated third party companies that we hire to provide us operational support. These unaffiliated third party companies provide services that allow us to complete transactions, such as real estate loans. Examples of these services include, but are not limited to, appraisals, title searches, flood certifications, inspections, and credit reports. The Bank of Fairport will not knowingly do business with any third party provider that uses or sells this information for marketing purposes.

II. COLLECTION, RETENTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
The Bank of Fairport may collect, retain and use personal information about customers (for example, we will obtain a credit report for an auto loan), but only as we believe is reasonably useful in administering our business and to provide products, services and other opportunities to customers.

III. MAINTENANCE OF ACCURATE INFORMATION
We will correct known inaccurate information in a timely manner.

IV. EMPLOYEE ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND ENFORCEMENT
All Bank of Fairport employees are educated on the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy. They are thoroughly trained to learn and follow our Privacy Policy. Employees with access to customer information are required to adhere to the Privacy Policy.

Any employee that violates the Privacy Policy will be subject to disciplinary measures (warnings, suspensions, reprimands) and possible termination of employment.

Web Site Security
The Bank of Fairport has implemented technology to help assure that any sensitive personal information you provide us or any account information you receive on-line is done in a safe and secure manner. Special secure-connection hardware and software commonly called "firewalls") are in place to help assure the security of online communication of your information.

Additionally, we have implemented procedures to help assure that only authorized Bank of Fairport employees may view the information you share with us. This is accomplished by limiting access to that information (via access capability and password control) to only those employees having a legitimate business purpose for viewing or responding to your information or inquiries.

This is the same procedure we follow for our customers that utilize other banking methods, such as telephone banking or branch banking. These procedures are detailed in our internal Privacy Statement that is available to you by written request.
