Internet Privacy Statement
Welcome to the Signature Bank web site. At this site you can learn about our many products and services and those of our affiliates, read our corporate reports, and find out information about career opportunities. Our current customers can apply for additional services and use our online customer service forms to take care of basic customer service needs.
We collect certain information about visitors to our site. This privacy statement explains what information is collected on the site, how it is used and who has access to it. This privacy statement is subject to our Privacy Notice, which applies to all customer information that we collect from our customers, not just information collected on the Signature Bank web site.
What information is collected?
At this web site we collect personal information from visitors, including name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers, (if you provide such information to us) and domain names and IP addresses automatically whenever you visit this site. In addition, we may ask for other information about you in order to provide the services you request or to complete a transaction you initiate. We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our service and to evaluate the usefulness of our web site. To accomplish this we may use a software "cookie". A cookie is a small piece of information that a web site stores in the web browser of your computer when you visit that web site and can retrieve during a later visit to that web site. No cookie will contain any information that would enable anyone to contact you by telephone, e-mail or U.S. mail. A cookie can only be read by the web site that sets the cookie. You can set your web browser to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you and provide you with the opportunity to refuse that cookie or to prevent cookies from being set. Setting your browser to disable cookies will not prevent you from visiting our web site.
How information is used
The information we collect is used to enhance your web experience at our site and for internal tracking purposes. If you have provided us with your address, phone number or e-mail address we may use such information to contact you about the services we are providing you or to advise you of other products and services we offer, unless you have advised us not to do so when you furnish such information.
Who will have access to the information?
We will not disclose or sell to any unaffiliated third parties or make publicly available any nonpublic personal information about you that we capture from this web site or which you have provided to us, except for disclosures to such companies that assist us in providing you with our products and services and with companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements. We only enter into joint marketing agreements in order to provide you with additional benefits and products of value. Disclosure will not be made to any company unless that company has agreed to keep such information confidential and not use it for any purpose other than to provide us with such assistance or to offer you such additional benefits and products. We may however, create and disclose aggregate user profiles that do not contain any nonpublic personal information. Your nonpublic personal information will be made available only to those at Signature Bank and its subsidiaries and affiliates who have a need to know such information in making this web site available to you, providing the products and services that you are using, completing a transaction you have initiated, or when required by law.
