The Peoples Community Bank Online Banking Privacy Policy

Certain personal information about visitors to this Web site is being collected by The Peoples Community Bank, located in Mazomanie, Wisconsin. Personal information is collected from you at the time an application for a loan or deposit account is submitted to the Bank, at the time transactions are conducted through the online banking service, and at the time information is provided by you via e-mail (including the name, e-mail address, and any other information on the e-mail header).

Information is collected for the purpose of processing your application, transaction, or request for information. The information will be used for the purposes of meeting your banking needs and requests, and providing services to you in the future. The Bank does not sell or share customer information with any nonaffiliated third parties, except certain third party service providers. These entities are required to execute a confidentiality agreement with the Bank which requires adherence to the Bank’s privacy policy and practices.

If you do not want your personal information collected, you may refrain from supplying the information, whether through e-mail or the Bank’s online banking service.

Ensuring your financial privacy is of vital importance to the Bank and its employees. We are taking the following steps to ensure the privacy and accuracy of the information collected from or about you: The Bank limits employee access to confidential customer financial information to those with a business reason for knowing such information. Bank employees are trained to understand the importance of customer financial privacy and to properly handle confidential information. The Bank endeavors to maintain the most accurate and up-to-date customer records possible. If you find that your account information is not correct, current, or complete, please call or write to us at the telephone number or address on your account statement and appropriate corrections will be made as soon as possible.

Additionally, information you submit via our online banking service is protected by encryption technology which scrambles account information to reduce the possibility of access by unauthorized individuals outside the Bank. To further protect your online banking service, the Bank requires the use of an ID and password.

You may review the information we collect about you and correct any errors in that information by reviewing account statements and any other correspondence from us and notifying us of any inaccurate or outdated information at the address or phone number on your statements.

If you have questions about your personal information, or would like to inform us about the potential misuse of your personal information, you may do so by sending a letter to Deborah Steiner, The Peoples Community Bank, 222 W. Commercial Street, Mazomanie, WI  53560, sending a telefacsimile to Deborah Steiner at (608) 795-2133, calling the bank at (608) 795-2120, or by sending us an e-mail at dsteiner@thepeoplescommunitybank.com. Since some e-mail transmissions may be subject to interception, if your correspondence contains sensitive information (e.g., your account number or social security number) you may want to send a letter or telefacsimile to us.

If you feel we have not met our obligations in the protection or use of your personal information, you may submit a complaint to the Bank. Any complaint will be handled in compliance with the Bank’s Consumer Complaints Policy. Breaches of customer privacy are considered serious employee misconduct and may result in termination of the employee.
