Advertising

From time to time, consumers may experience ‘Pop Ups’ from other companies while visiting our website. Pop Ups are generated by ‘Adware’ placed on the consumer’s computer when other sites have been visited, usually for advertising or other gain. The Bank does not participate in the use of Adware and these ‘Pop Ups’ will never be due to content placed on our website. The Bank will not be held responsible for ‘Pop Ups’ that appear while browsing our website due to Adware being previously installed.

How we use and share information

Unless otherwise described in this policy, we will use and share any information that we collect from or about you that is covered by this policy in accordance with The First National Bank of Throckmorton Privacy Policy.

Making sure information is accurate

Keeping your account information accurate and up to date is very important. If your account information is incomplete, inaccurate or not current, please call or write to us at the telephone numbers or appropriate address for such changes listed on your account statements, bank records, online banking or other account materials.

Looking out for children

We do not knowingly market to or solicit information from children under 13 without parental consent. 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. While The First National Bank of Throckmorton works to protect your personal information, you also have responsibility. The internet is a public network. Children’s access to the internet can allow them to visit inappropriate websites and be exposed to unwanted risks. COPPA, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, protects children under the age of 13 from online collection of personal information. Parents can be proactive by installing filtering software that gives them more control over their family’s internet experience. We recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Changes to the Online Practices Privacy Policy

This policy is subject to change. If we make changes to the Online Practices Privacy Policy, we will revise the last updated date. Please review periodically.
