We are committed to safeguarding the use of your nonpublic personal information. We protect the security and confidentiality of the nonpublic personal information we have collected, and make efforts to ensure that such information is used for proper business purposes in connection with the management or servicing of your account. Our relationship with you is our most important asset. We understand that you have entrusted us with your nonpublic personal information, and we do everything we can to maintain that trust.

Federal law gives you the right to limit the sharing of your nonpublic personal information, when: (1) sharing is for affiliates' everyday business purposes, (2) sharing with affiliates is done to use your information to market to you, and (3) sharing with non-affiliates is done to use your information to market to you. We do not share your information in any of these ways. State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

Section 502(a) of the G-L-B Act generally prohibits a financial institution, directly or through its affiliates, from sharing nonpublic personal information with a non-affiliated third party unless the institution (i) provides the consumer with a notice of the institution's privacy policies and practices, (ii) provides the consumer with a clear and conspicuous notice that the consumer's nonpublic personal information may be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties, (iii) gives the consumer an opportunity to opt out of that disclosure, and (iv) informs the consumer how to opt out.
