What we do

How does Southern Bank protect my personal information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.

We also restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you.

How does Southern Bank collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you

open an account or apply for a loan

use your debit card or provide account information

make deposits or withdrawals from your account

We also collect your personal information from others, such as credit bureaus, affiliates, or other companies.

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only

sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness

affiliates from using your information to market to you

sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?

Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.
