OUR PRIVACY & SECURITY PLEDGE
At First Southern Bank the basis of each customer relationship, many of which span generations, is trust. You have chosen to do business with First Southern Bank, and we are obligated to honor that relationship with great care, beginning with the information you have chosen to share with us. We believe that your privacy should not be compromised. At the same time, we want to offer you the array of financial products and services you need to accomplish your financial goals. We believe we can do both as outlined below.
Understand how we use and protect customer information.
Protecting Your Privacy Online
Whenever we ask for personal information on our website, we use Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") technology for transferring data. This technology encrypts - or scrambles - your account information so it's virtually impossible for anyone other than First Southern Bank to read it.
Further, we use state-of-the-art Internet technology, supported by the outside companies we work with, to make online banking secure and to protect your personal information. You can also help maintain the security of your banking information by not sharing your I.D. or password with anyone, by changing your password regularly, and by remembering to sign off.
Linking From Our Site
On occasion First Southern Bank may provide links on its website to other websites operated by third parties. If you use these links, you will leave First Southern Bank's website, and your browser will be redirected to websites over which First Southern Bank has no control. You should acquaint yourself with these other websites, as they may have privacy policies that differ significantly from First Southern Bank.
Protecting our Children
We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
