Respect of Right to Privacy
First Pryority Bank respects your right to privacy and takes every precaution to provide you with the same level of privacy within our virtual branch that you receive through more traditional bank delivery channels.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
The collection of personal information online is designed to protect access to your personal accounts and to assist the bank in providing you with the products and services you want and need. All personal information collected and stored by the bank is used for specific business purposes to protect and administer your personal accounts and transactions, to comply with state and federal banking regulations, and to help the bank better understand your financial needs in order to design or improve our products and services.

We recognize the importance of protecting children’s identities and privacy online. Our website is not directed at children, and we do not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from children.
Maintenance of Accurate Information
It is in the best interest of both you and the bank to maintain accurate records concerning your personal information. For this reason, First Pryority Bank allows you to update your personal information, online, anytime, through the submission of encrypted e-mail requests sent to the bank’s secure administration site. Notifications are immediately sent to approved bank personnel alerting them to the receipt of your request. This procedure allows First Pryority Bank to update your personal information within a timely manner.
Limited Employee Access to Personal Information
First Pryority Bank limits employee access to your personal information to only those bank administrators with a business reason for knowing such information. First Pryority Bank also educates all employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy. In addition, individual user names and passwords are used by approved bank personnel to access your personal information online, providing audit trails to further safeguard the privacy of your personal information.
Third-Party Disclosure Restrictions
First Pryority Bank follows strict privacy procedures in regard to protecting your personal information. In addition, the bank requires all third parties with a business need to access this information to adhere to similar and equally stringent privacy policies. Personal information may be supplied to a third party in order to process a customer transaction; if the customer requests it; the disclosure is required or allowed by law (i.e. exchange of information with reputable reporting agencies, subpoena, or the investigation of fraudulent activity, etc.); or for marketing purposes of which the customer has been previously informed and has been given the opportunity to decline.
