SecurityOnline Banking features three levels of security. At the user level, the system requires an SSL-compliant browser to ensure information is authentic, cannot be deciphered and has not been altered en route. Once a secure connection has been established, a valid log-in ID and password are needed to gain access to services. Remember, it's important to protect your log-in ID and password from others.

Server level security features a sophisticated filtering system which blocks non-secured activity and defends against inappropriate access. At the host level, transactions are sent via secure dedicated communications lines from the home banking server to transaction server which verifies member identity. Once authenticated, the member is allowed to process authorized Internet banking and bill payment transactions using host data.

The security of Online Banking rivals that of some of the most secure government facilities.

Note: Because Online Banking service must identify particular individuals and account numbers in order to complete transactions, members who use this service will receive cookies on their computers. Cookies are small pieces of information sent by a web server to store on a web browser so they can later be read back from that browser. Cookies are a way for Online Banking to organize and keep track of your information as you proceed from one transaction to the next. Otherwise, your browser would be forced to ask for your log-in ID and password for each transaction you perform. We do not gather, use, sell, or exchange any information contained in cookies that are created by using Online Banking.

eStatementsTrees are pretty important for all of us... save some by reading your statement online!
