Your privacy is your number one concern when you’re banking online.
Here are a few things to remember:
- Your information: The information you give to the banking institution may be shared with other institutions. Like your average balance or how many checks your write.
- Find out what they collect: You can find out what kind of information they collect that they share with other companies. This way you have an idea if you want it to be or not.
- Your right to “opt out”- You have the right to “opt out” and not have your information shared with anyone. Make sure you find all this out when you join. If you do not want to share then make sure you check the box with this option or tell them on the phone. But to double check yourself and make sure you get it in writing.
