Privacy Statement

Definition of Nonpublic Personal Information:

Nonpublic Personal Information means information about you that we collect in connection with providing a financial product or service s to you.  Nonpublic personal information does not include information that is available from public sources, such as telephone directories or government records.

This disclosure applies to all customers who have a continuing relationship with us, such as:

  • Deposit Accounts
  • Loan Accounts
  • Safe Deposit Boxes
Balance Availability Disclaimer

Our online banking balances include the following current day activity:

  • Visa debit card transactions
  • Telebanking transfers and loan payments
  • Online banking based transfers and loan payments
  • Bank-generated service charges
  • Stop payment and NSF fees (posted after 11 am)
  • ACH Transactions, which include:
    • Pre-authorized debits (for example – insurance premiums)
    • Direct deposits (for example – payroll)

Items noted with ‘Memopost Presentments’ have been presented to the bank, but have not been processed.  They do reflect in your ‘Memo Available Balance’, but do not adjust your ‘Current Ledger Balance’ until processed.  However, additional physical presentments not yet received by the bank may adjust this balance throughout the day.  The bank cannot anticipate when physical items may be presented for payment. 

Visa Debit Cards function on ‘Memo Ledger Balances’.  Therefore, an overdraft may be created if the Visa Debit Card is used and the ‘Current Ledger Balance’ falls below $0.00, even though the ‘Memo Ledger Balance’ may have reflected a positive balance earlier in the day.  This scenario is a result of additional presentments made to the bank during the day.  The bank does not have the information necessary to determine the customer’s book balance.  Only the customer can determine this amount.

Funds Availability

Funds deposited through teller transactions before 2:00 pm are available, subject to federal regulations, the next business day.  In some cases, we may delay your ability to withdraw funds beyond the first business day.  Then, the funds will generally be available by the second business day after the day of deposit.   Business days are Mondays through Friday, except federal holidays.
