Mobile Privacy Policy

Before proceeding, please take a moment to read and understand what personal information your banking app might collect under certain circumstances and how this information is used. For more details, please see the Privacy Policy.

Why do we request access to personal information? The application requests access to information stored on your device such as location, camera, images, contacts, or other features you are enrolled in to enrich and simplify your own user experience and improve our services, as well as provide additional security to protect your account. It is important for you to understand that before granting access to this information you will be prompted to give the application permission. If you do not wish to grant that permission, you may decline. If you later change your mind, those permissions can be updated in your device’s settings.

Some possible examples of information your app may request access to are:

  • Location:
    Your location is used to prevent fraudulent activity and to display locations near you.
  • Contacts:
    Allowing access lets you add contacts to use with features that allow you to send money via your mobile app. We will only add the contacts you choose, and that information will not be shared.
  • Camera/Images:
    This app uses your camera to capture check images for mobile deposits.
